NotesCover: Censored lyrics. Vinyl: Partial Censored Lyrics.
Technically, this is a different album to the 1st issue, which had fully censored vinyl content.
1st press UK '2nd censored' issue; Laminated cover, unlaminated inner gatefold, with group in dresses on outer face. The 'Sgt Pepper' pastiche features inside and later became the cover, as was initially intended.
(This cover printed by "E. J. Day Group, London & Bedford". Not the "Howard printers (Slough) Ltd England" version*)
Track B4 is titled "It's His Voice On The Radio" on sleeve, but correctly credited on label.
Label has the original MGM "Made under licence from - Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., Owners of the trade mark Verve" text above the silver 'T' motif, plus other minor variations in comparison with later* releases. (*as found on UK 'Howard-print' sleeved label version)
"All the music heard on this album was composed, arranged & scientifically mutilated (with the exception of a little bit of surf music). None of the sounds are generated electronically... they are all the product of electronically altering the sounds of normal instruments."
"The present day composer refuses to die!"
(Edgard Varese, July 1921)
A2 errata: on label has "Need" not "Needs".
