Both Mono & Stereo versions of this collection are quality vinyl. With only five tracks per side, audio signal response is noticeably better in both configurations.

"Plastic Man" is unique to this compilation, with the "stereo" 2-track version here representing its only release. Otherwise mono/stereo differences are the same as the preceding LP versions.

Seam-splitting occurred quickly with this set's single cover with inside card divider. LPs were originally shipped in individual sealed loose plastic bags - not paper sleeves.
