Comments

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

Aug. 1, 2004: replaced with earlier pressing (matrix imprints with MF1 suffix on both sides). My previous copy (as seen below) had an indicator “III” both on the labels and the back cover, as well as matrix imprints with smaller MG prefix (MS2 F-S / MS2 F-S). This was probably one of the early 1960s pressings. Please compare these photos with early pressings' (seen at the bottom of this page).
