Laminated gatefold sleeve, no date code and no printer’s credit.
Sleeves appear to be identical on 1st pressings and later reissues on Harvest.
Rear sleeve is identical design to front (other than inclusion of catalogue number) which always seems to be a waste to me. Inner gatefold is portrait.
Uk 1st pressing information must include the following –
“SOLD IN U.K. SUBJECT TO RESALE PRICE CONDITIONS, SEE PRICE LISTS”
“THE GRAMOPHONE CO. LTD” around rim of label
No EMI box logo on label
“MADE IN GT. BRITAIN” at bottom of label
UK 1st pressing (with label as above)
S H V L 7 5 5 A – 2G (G at 3 o’clock in deadwax, 1 at 9 o’clock)
S H V L 7 5 5 B – 1G (G at 3 o’clock in deadwax, 1 at 9 o’clock)
