  2. My copy has the sleeve credits as detailed here but with the boxed emi logo etc., could it be that they had sleeves left over from the original issue so just used them up

    • Generally, they didn’t bother changing the artwork for the sleeves, through numerous reissues (Book Of Taliesyn is a good example). So either left over sleeves from initial print run or reprinted without changing artwork/films/printing plates – unnecessary costs.
