Annotation

This release seems to be conflicted about what it is documenting.

The link is to an Amazon CD. But there is another release that also has a link to the CD, and that release seems more complete: with catalog number, bar code, and label.

The release date is the release date for the vinyl release. There were no CDs back in 1971. And there is another release for the vinyl with catalog number, packaging, etc.

The medium is "unknown". I thought I might turn this into a digital (iTunes, MP3, etc.) release, but the release has a CD DiscID, and that precludes a digital medium.

Mostly, I think this release wants to be for a CD. We could fix the medium, release date, and missing data, but we already have a US CD release that is more correct. Maybe the best thing to do is to merge this release into that release.
