There are 2 different red labels with big "E". Most copies you'll see have "the stooges" on label (same logo as on the cover), mine doesn't (matrix # EKS 74051 A CP 1 SS 41 & EKS 74051 B CP 2 SS 41). I don't know which came first, but the rare white label promo doesn't have the logo.

Also, original Elektra inner sleeve is either brown & white or black (with Elektra studios pictures on the back). Pre-1969 Elektra pressings (Love, Doors) have white & brown inner sleeves.

(Note there's an endless controversy about first US pressing being actually with gold label, not red, but it is believed gold label is Canadian pressing)

original stereo uk copies were manufactured by Polydor London. Laminated both sides sleeve made by MacNeill press London. Only ever seen one other copy, in Notting Hill record and tape exchange around 1978, it was 9.00. A month later it had been reduced to 7.00...someone else must have one!

I also have a gold label,it doen't say canada or u.s..the sleeve is u.s.
there are canadian pressings which say made in canada,they also have a bit different sleeves.
gold (tan)labels also came in germany and france
original dutch pressing has a black label and a u.s.sleeve
