Notes

"Recording by LES EDITIONS DE L'OISEAU-LYRE, released exclusively in Australia by World Record Club."

Australian WRC 3rd pressing, sourced from original stampers and featuring unique sleeve art. In a rare case of the reissue being packaged more generously than the original, it is packaged in a black cardboard box with white trimming inside. The 12-page libretto is reproduced, as well as a single sheet with the rear covers from the individual sleeves of the 1st edition. Clearly a late addition to the WRC reissue schedule, the new R- numbers are higher than those for other LPs originally released in 1969 (originally issued as S/4466 and S/4467, the R- numbers might be expected to be around the R-00400 mark). The box has the old numbers on the spine, but the labels do not (usually, WRC reissues had the old number as part of the label matrix, i.e. "S-4466---ZTT511": here, it's just "ZTT511").

The libretto features the 1971 address combination, meaning there had been [at least] one more issue before this one.
