Additional Information
Comments 1988-90 Purple Capitol label re-issue, first "C1" series.

This is the 1988 re-issue which was the same catalog # as the CD (#46446), the first time this album was issued a new catalog # in the US.

New masters were created for this, as remnants of the old matrix # SO-1/2-383 is no longer present.

This was pressed at Specialty Records Corporation, Los Angeles, one of the plants that Capitol used at the time after they closed their own plants. It's identified in the matrix by a large S with small R and C inside the S. (See photo)
