This is the original US release on Warner Bros.-Seven Arts.

The labels are green and have the "W7" boxed logo.

Side A is labeled "Part 1"; Side B is labeled "Part 2" (see images)

First cat. # on labels, and back sleeve, spine.
Second cat. # on front sleeve.

A small inverted "P" stamped in the runout areas
denotes a Columbia, Pitman pressing.

Note: Pitman seems to be the only plant that
pressed this LP with a "W7" logo label stock
All other early US versions derive from this one
but use a green label stock with "WB" shield logo instead.
The sleeves are identical on all early versions
