Side A (hand-etched): SDL 284-A
Side B (hand-etched): SDL 284-B

The sleeve has a laminated front cover and is perfect other than very slight browning around the very outer margins of the back. There are some groove marks which add very slight squeaking to the sound on track B1, otherwise the vinyl is free of marks or scratches and is in near excellent condition. A most unusual item.
