Notes

"Recorded under the auspices of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation."

"An H.M.V. recording, released exclusively in Australia by The Record Society."

Australian WRC pressing for the Record Society, sourced from original stampers and featuring unique sleeve art. Same artwork on front used for S/6287 and S/6327. The LP is housed in the right side of the gatefold, with the sleeve opening inside at the centre. The back of the gatefold flap is blank. Only known WRC edition. Mono and stereo versions have identical artwork - "RS 6249" on spine, "S/6249" on back/inner. The mono version has "6249" on brown 'herald' labels, while the stereo has "S-6249". There is a printed "stereo" rosette on the back, and the mono has a red sticker with "mono" placed over this (though these tend to drop off with age).
