1st issue of the limited gatefold cover

MISPRESS

with rare EMG label  cat # EMG 64 on the black paper label A SIDE ONLY

In fact not many were manufactured with the 'G' prefix to match the gatefold cover cat #

Most of thiese were issued with the usual EM 64 cat # in keeping with other limited editions where the cover or sticker on the cover is assigned the special limited number but rarely is the disc included with the special cat #

Printing error when the 1st batch pf labels were done

The 1st issues with the gatefold have the EMG cat # on the black and silver paper label and are contained in the original die-cut matt black paper inner sleeve

Less than 5% were made with the EMG # on the label then the gatefold contained the black/silver paper label with the EM 64 cat # on the label

A few gatefold covers also came with the moulded silver/black plastic label strangely-also with EM 64 #

The normal 7" single sleeve picture cover EM 64 also came with black/silver paper label but this was followed by the silver/black plastic label
