Important Notes

Be aware that this is the original release, with off-speed three first tracks (approx 9:02 9:33 5:25).
Reissued as such on cd, it got later corrected to either the "track 1 slow fade" version (9:22 9:43 5:32, as seen in the six tracks version of this release), or as "track 1 fast fade" (9:06 9:43 5:33), as seen in the 5 tracks 1992 reissue.
The off-speed version was largely reprinted during the vinyl era and was issued at least two times on CDs in 1984 & 1987 before later reissues started correcting the off-speed, some with a slightly wrong pitch...
If you're attaching either discids or pweeds here, please be careful in the version you choose!
