1968, non-gatefold Oddly, this LP was a gatefold LP in the UK on Pye and in the USA on Reprise. It was non-gatefold in Canada and Mexico. It is not clear why ... perhaps to save money. Note that original Canadian blue Pye label copies were pressed by RCA and some came with the orange and purple Phonodisc paper inner sleeve. NOTE: original 1968 copies are VERY RARE and there are later issues on the 1970s label and the 1980s PRT label
This is the very first 1968 Canadian RCA pressing and is very rare. Second row left is the 2nd pressing from around 1972-1973 and on the right is the later 1970s pressing that is much more common.
