A modern condensed performance. Includes a 12-page booklet (pages 2 and 11 are blank), with the 1965 addresses unchanged on the back.

Australian WRC 3rd pressing, sourced from original stampers and featuring unique sleeve art. Mono and stereo versions have an identical flipback sleeve, with the same number on the back (LS/9) - the mono version has "LS-9" on labels, while the stereo has "SLS-9". 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). The addresses on the rear of the sleeve have been updated (to the 1968 combination), and misspelled.
