Notes

First pressing has labels without Warner logo (W) on rim text and vinyl matrix ending with 1/4/1/1.

A very few copies comes with a top rounded black sticker with titles track and "TWO RECORD SET SSK 89400"

The original die-cut "windows" cover has "SWAN SONG/484 KINGS ROAD, LONDON SW10" address at the top on back.
The set contains two custom inners with code "SSK 89400/A" for disc 1 and "SSK 89400/B" for disc 2 on bottom right back corner, plus a 2-page folded insert that has songs titles, credits, and text "Sleeve printed and made in England by Gothic Print Finishers Ltd., London SE9 2EQ".

Original cover & inners are smooth on the outside and textured/rough on the inside.

However, the Insert has 3 different types - all used throughout the 1st Pressing run:-

1) First Insert - Satin finish to front and back, thick in quality, with a SINGLE fold to the bottom as in the detailed photo (not to be confused with the later re-issue inserts from the late 70s which are shiny, very thin, and have 2 folds). This is the rarest insert type, and existed on the first few copies only - as identified by the different shines to the colours under light (current to the printing processes available in 1975), satin finish and SINGLE fold. Found on the 1st Press 1/4/1/1 copies, and in some 2nd Press 1/5/1/1 copies.

2) This was then changed to the insert with the cardboard back (to match the cover & inners), but again has a SINGLE fold. Again like the above this quite rare. Only found on the 1st Press 1/4/1/1 copies.

3) Lastly the most common insert found in most 1st Press copies - is the insert with the white front and cardboard back with TWO folds at the bottom. The above two rarest inserts with a single fold, did not fit properly around the inners & records inside the cover, and so TWO folds (like a cover spine) were made on each insert at the bottom. This therefore solved the problem, and therefore wrapped around the records & inners inside the cover properly.

    I have this pressing and unfortunately mine doesn’t play that loud. I think I need to get my copy ultra sonic cleaned although the discs look clean I think there’s something holding back my copy from sounding better

      UK first pressing collection wise, but Classic Records 200gr pressing sound wise.

        I have the white satin front and back insert with one fold, as would fit with the first press and potentially rarer press but the lps have the later following matrices. It would appear to be a combination of both the first and third example mentioned in the Lp's notes. So an anomoly or something more interesting?

          Can anybody recommend a pressing that has a well pronounced bottom end/bass. I own both UK original pressings and the Classic Records but finding the bass very subtle especially on tracks like In My Time Of Dying.

                Just bought a new Physical Graffiti CD, but i haven't found the version of it here in discogs, the label is different from the others, the sound quality isn't the best, the sleeves looks original, but the CD's and the plastic box doesn't. I bought it here in Brazil, but all the info in the cd's and sleeves says that it was manufactured in the US, idk where i can upload pictures from it, i need help just to know if it is original...

                  My copy is from 1976 and has 2 disc 1s. Is this a thing that happened?

                      I can vouch for the fact that a 1/5/1/1 copy ALSO has the thick insert with satin finish both sides and a single fold along with all the other fiddly features that a 1/4/1/1 has. It's not "only on 1/4/1/1 copies" as claimed in the main entry.
