I found out Roy Harper sang a couple of tracks on this album [1], I thought he should be added into the credits. Stephenjh 08:18, 27 May 2006 (UTC)


The section states "The inner sleeve of the LP is unusual: taller than it is wide, it does not fit into the outer sleeve if turned 90 degrees." I have marked this "dubious" because my copy is a UK original, Harvest SHSP 24-0079-1, and the inner sleeve is as tall as it is wide- 308 mm. There are two unusual features of that inner sleeve - first, it has rounded corners (radius approx 16 mm), second, the open edge is not at the top, but on the right when you're looking at the lyrics for side 1. The "Fleudian slip" note is lower right of the side with lyrics for side 2. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:11, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

The inner sleeve of the copy (Columbia, made in USA) I've just obtained differs from the above description. No rounded corners, opening at top. Both it and the cardboard outer sleeve are a little taller than they are wide. The outer sleeve seems to be a full 12 1/2" wide, maybe 1/8" or more taller than usual. Even so, my inner sleeve does fit into the cover 'sideways,' with the opening turned to the side, just barely. Allowing for production variations its quite possible that the earlier writer's sleeve did not. And clearly this version of the sleeve differs from the UK version described above. It still says "Fleudian slip" though.... I have edited this page appropriately to point out this variation for collectors.Don (talk) 14:05, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
