My 1971 DECCA US copy is mislabeled with the side 1 label printed "Side1" however the song listings are the side 2 songs. The Side 2 label is correct. Is this a common error?

Probably the best compilation for a The Who fan, which, sadly, I'm not.
This is a record my Dad gave me, although he knows I'm not too fussed about them (screw you, Dad!)... However, I did get some fun out of it. Obviously, My Generation is a great song, as well as Happy Jack and The Kids Are Alright. So yeah, Side A is pretty decent. Unfortunately, it's not an album I could listen to constantly. It's definitely one of those I'll pick up from time to time, but nothing more. A couple of songs (can't remember the names) sounded a bit too predictable and generic in terms of rock music, though I know The Who played a big part in rock evolution, or should I say, 'revolution'....
Anyway, yes, it is my moral obligation to review all my records, even ones I don't want to. This record isn't necessarily bad, and it especially won't be for any of you reading this, however, I can only say that I got 'some' kicks out of it.

My copy has a gatefold sleeve. I can't tell from images of this release whether it is the same. Cat number on back sleve is 2406 006 SUPER.
