This release has both a label code (LC concept didn't exist until 1976/7) and a PRS Hannover stamp (company didn't exist until 1978), so it can't have been released any earlier than that.

These are the 1996 remasters done by Ray Staff, and they sound bad (i.e. victims of the loudness war).

After reading this, I'm just going to stick with the original CD. That scythe sound is one of my favorite parts of the whole album.
