Thanks for the over-exaggerated review Mr. streethouse!
Actually, the version here on the player is from the album of that time, which varies
from its 45rpm counterpart recording which has (fake audience) participation clapping etc

" It is pressed from the very same plates used to make the commercially-available 45rpm singles."

This is not always the case.

This is the first pressing by Decca, prior to EMI's acquisition of the Capitol label,
Not easy to locate decent examples of these originals,

Says "Made in Holland" on the labels.
Says "Printed in Holland" on the back cover.

So how come Spanish Italian, German, etc issues are not categorised as Europe then?

16 June: Made in England ( hopefully soon) stays as Made In England.

giving it nine panels. This folds down to the approximate size of the two inserts.

Is dependant on whose blood is colour match to this vinyl.
If one compares, it can be observed that PYE changed the shade of red by mid 70's

ps. was colloquially known as 'wine red' when all this came about years ago.

No red translucence in 1969.
The first colour pigment for PYE's DJM series was brown - in 1970.

The UK LP Elton John listings are a mess (especially the DJM pressings),
which is at least consistent with this site.
For example: 8 variations all from 1970 of Tumbleweed Connection?

Wide spine covers appeared with some early issues only. So if Stampers on the disc are not a reasonably low number coding for this album, has been infected into the circuit by the 'mix-and-match' fraternity :(

This is not specific to 1970, as the design was used Autumn 1969 to end of 1971

The UK listings for this LP is messy, thus so are the sales listings.
The first issue has the red sticker on the front, with the Poster and artistic Inner within, and this pressing needs to be the first issue stated and depicted.
