I have this and also understood it to be a "transitional" press. The sound quality is actually stunning and not at all noisy. Im not convinced that this was a later re press

I have this pressing and the matrix codes and labels are identical, but it doesn't have a gatefold sleeve. Other copies I've seen always seem to have the gatefold packaging. Does anyone know anything about this variant?

Was this pressed in 1975?

So with the merge we confirm that the transitional press is a myth?

Are we sure that this is correct? Aren't the matrix numbers on the regular second press palm tree label A-1, B-1 U as well?

this has really poor sound, best left alone in my opinion (the re-release on the palm tree label with orange blue background).
