                  on the album I have, the jacket looks normal (I've never
                  seen another copy), but the LP has plain white labels
                  with printing: 'Test Pressing / Side / Selection / Date",
                  with hand writing in ink: "A", "B", "MR52790" and "12-6-79"

                  (see also SR-293)
                  unlike all other albums I have actually seen, this is the
                  only one that has no copyright date in the liner notes or
                  on the LP
