    thank you for clearing that up as i knew a few years back when i FINALLY got a copy of this from a dealer in europe that this was the first pressing, also i forgot to note a few years back that the inner sleeve has a really nice photo of the band from this era and the logo etc on the other side of the inner, photos of ufo from 70 to 72 dont come to easy for whatever reason, i have not seen to many in my 41 years as a fan.....point is also the first pressing came with the inner sleeve photo wich makes this record hard to find, still the hardest to find is the japan edition of this record from 1971 on stateside records, it came on both black & red vinyl, my copy has the black vinyl complete w/ obi

      This is indeed the first pressing on the white label. The first 2 UFO albums on the Beacon white label were pressed by EMI / Gramophone, as experienced collectors can see from the unique pressing characteristics visible on the label. All of my white Beacon copies (both albums) also have the standard EMI die stamped '1' mother and 'G' stamper in the run out or dead wax area. Additionally the lacquer cutting die stamps: A-1 and B-1 are the exact same as other EMI cuttings for example Deep Purple s/t on Harvest etc.

      When this and the UFO debut were re-pressed around 1972, the manufacturer switched to CBS UK, using the orange label, again having the distinctive pressing characteristics of early 1970's CBS, Atlantic, Reprise, Blue Horizon etc. These CBS pressings originally came with the distinctive UK die cut white paper inner sleeve with the 'center window' and the blue text 'Made in England / Patent No. 1,125,555' commonly used for CBS / Kinney products in this era. Interestingly, the re-press has the exact same lacquer / matrix stampings A-1 and B-1 indicating the original metal parts used for the EMI pressings were used. Hence, the sound quality is essentially identical for both, whether you have a white or orange Beacon label. Hope this helps clear up the misinformation about its pressing lineage.

        The first and second album first issued on a red label. This is the original.
        And only two years later, these albums are released on a white label.
        Therefore, the red label is much, much rarer.
        Of course the sound of red and white label differ significantly.
        Unfortunately red labels with the marriage of printing.
        But the red label sounds much more realistic. Because it is the original.
        In the white labels this marriage fixed, as usual.
        But the magic of the sound disappeared.
        The closest sounding like the red label is… German Decca Royal Sound. Because it is original too.
        But, not only white Beacon with the artificial sound.

          this is the original first 1971 pressing of this spacey ufo lp, the title says it all, this album sounds nothing like the later hard rock ufo wich is what ufo are still famous for today, this was the second lp with guitarist mick bolton, anyway i LOVE THIS SLEEVE and this lp is quite hard to find nowdays in great condition, the white label beacon uk press is the very first uk pressing of this great album wich was reissued many many times again throughout the 70s,80s and 90s.....
