Notes:

This is quite rare transitional UK pressing. Presumably from 1973.
Surely some time between second half of 1972 to June 1974.
(Song listing in 2 lines on both sides (since about the second half of 1972)
(The first album with updated label design was released in June 1974)


The main difference from the previous issues:
Same EMI label design as [r13986087 but
1) HAS stamper & mother numbers In the dead wax run-off area i.e. the wax at the 3 & 9 o'clock positions
2) 'THE GRAMOPHONE' credits around the top rim on BOTH sides
3) 'MADE IN GT.BRITAIN' in the middle, just above the bottom rim text, on BOTH sides

On 1st July 1973, The Gramophone Company Ltd. was renamed to EMI Records Ltd. which is certainly influenced the changes in label design for all EMI labels. Now the upper rim text begins with 'EMI RECORDS LTD.' and the text 'MADE IN GT. BRITAIN' is shifted down to the end of the lower rim text. However, this didn't happen instantly, and the process of changing labels for Harvest was stretched out for about a year.  The first album with updated label design was released in June 1974 

Other main identifiers:

- Laminated gatefold sleeve with 'Printed and Made by Garrod & Lofthouse Ltd.' in most cases have an additional fine keyline box around the EMI and Harvest logos on the front of the sleeve. But the 1st sleeve variant with a single bold line around the logos is still valid.
- Runouts: A2 / B1 (until about mid-1975);
- The boxed 'EMI' logo on labels (since about June 1971);
- Song listing in 2 lines on both sides (since about the second half of 1972);
- The Ⓟ icon (under the 'Side A/B' indicator on labels) has the same size as the year '1970' to the right of it (since about December 1970 / January 1971).
