Notes

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

Australian WRC pressing, sourced from original stampers and featuring unique sleeve art. Issued in separate sleeves, with 12-page libretto included. Mono and stereo versions have identical sleeves and the same numbers on the back (S/4466 and S/4467) - the mono version has "4466" and "4467" on beige 'strobe' labels, while the stereo has "S-4466" and "S-4467" on green 'strobe' labels. 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).
