Additional Information
Comments First pressing has labels without Warner logo (W) on rim text and vinyl matrix ending with 1/4/1/1.

A very few copies comes with a top rounded black sticker with titles track and "TWO RECORD SET SSK 89400"

The original die-cut "windows" cover has "SWAN SONG/484 KINGS ROAD, LONDON SW10" address at the top on back.
The set contains two custom inners with code "SSK 89400/A" for disc 1 and "SSK 89400/B" for disc 2 on bottom right back corner, plus a 2-page folded insert that has songs titles, credits, and text "Sleeve printed and made in England by Gothic Print Finishers Ltd., London SE9 2EQ".

Original cover & inners are smooth on the outside and textured/rough on the inside.

However, the Insert has 3 different types - all used throughout the 1st Pressing run:-

1) First Insert - Satin finish to front and back, thick in quality, with a SINGLE fold to the bottom as in the detailed photo (not to be confused with the later re-issue inserts from the late 70s which are shiny, very thin, and have 2 folds). This is the rarest insert type, and existed on the first few copies only - as identified by the different shines to the colours under light (current to the printing processes available in 1975), satin finish and SINGLE fold. Only found on the 1st Press 1/4/1/1 copies.

2) This was then changed to the insert with the cardboard back (to match the cover & inners), but again has a SINGLE fold. Again like the above this quite rare. Again only found on the 1st Press 1/4/1/1 copies.

3) Lastly the most common insert found in most 1st Press copies - is the insert with the white front and cardboard back with TWO folds at the bottom. The above two rarest inserts with a single fold, did not fit properly around the inners & records inside the cover, and so TWO folds (like a cover spine) were made on each insert at the bottom. This therefore solved the problem, and therefore wrapped around the records & inners inside the cover properly.
