Just picked this up. All three discs were stacked between the gatefold. Not pretty.

It should be noted the download files are all brick walled (flat at 0db), what some consider a fall back to the loudness war. Why the band didn't bother to offer full spectrum files is bothersome. But still, the music is incredible.

Thanks for this, Darrell. You need to write a book about your adventures.

I own 8 versions of this LP, 2 UK ad 6 US. The UK RAL-A3/B3 TimTom W-21 is the best sounding version I've found. Great detail, ballsy bass and full dimension sound.

This release is not a dedicated mono release. It's a "Fold-down", meaning, the stereo version was mixed into a mono mix. Ways to tell: on the song The Lantern, there are two district bell sounds, the same as on the stereo release. The true mono mix ... See full review

Are you sure this is a second pressing? I though the un-boxed London labels represented a first pressing, esp. with the Mono release.

There is a much rarer mono version [very] first pressing, hastily withdrawn, which had a different mix of "Tomorrow Never Knows" (known as "remix 11") this has a matrix number on side 2 of XEX 606-1.

Although listed as a repress, the only difference between this and the first issue is the gatefold sleeve. The vinyl Matrix numbers are the same as the first press.

From Wikipedia:

The album cover looks like the simple cover of a bootleg LP of the era and was modelled after The Rolling Stones' Live'r Than You'll Ever Be:[11] it is of plain brown cardboard with "The Who Live At Leeds" printed on it in plain blue or ... See full review

The same info below applies to Abbey Road:

At the "6 O'clock" position on the inner groove area is the matrix number with a -1 or -2 etc.
For instance, Beatles For Sale in stereo is YEX 142-1 (etc.).
The "1" means the FIRST LACQUER cut from the master. ... See full review
