RECOGNISING AN ORIGINAL
How to tell if you have one of the original releases from 1967
The 1990 re-issue cover was very similar to the original - the blue overprint on the front was slightly different, but you need both in front of you to see the difference The back cover was also very similar. However, at the bottom right there is a slanting piece of type which says: "HOLYGROUND IS AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES ORGANISATION this cover is for left-handed people"
This only appears on the re-issue.
