Notes

℗ & © 1973

A2 - An adaptation of Ginastera's 1st Piano Concerto, 4th Movement.

This is the actual first UK release of the album, and it was pressed in the USA by Atlantic Records at Speciality Records Corporation (SRC logo on runout: large S with R and C in the loops).

This 1st pressing was released on November 19, 1973 in both the US and the UK at the same time. US copies had -F stampers on both sides, UK copies had G- stampers on both sides.

The US disc and the Atlantic "Rock 4" inner sleeve were imported back into the UK and housed in the UK first edition sleeve with the catalogue number K53501 on rear and spine and Manticore logo distributed by WEA Records Ltd on rear.

Later issues were printed with a Manticore/WEA catalogue number. Original pressing comes in a fold out jacket and a poster.

Below the Manticore logo, there is a misspelled "Manicore" on rear. That was corrected already on the first, non-hybrid, 100% made in the UK Brain Salad Surgery release, which had vinyl made in the UK and presented also the fold out jacket and the poster.
