NOTE:

Dates shown on sleeves relate to when the covers were printed, they do not represent issue dates or the pressing inside. It can be difficult to ascertain what pressing goes in what sleeve. Priority in this guide is given to the record label. On this page, a black background indicates a first issue, a blue background represents a re-pressing. Sleeve and record combinations shown here are estimated. (great fun!)
