This album cover is so elusive, all collectors once agreed that it simply did not exist. Today, there are four known copies. September 6, 2014 a copy surfaced in Italy with an import sticker. Purchased new, this one-time owner later sold this copy in a private sale. On March 3, 2015, a second copy was found in a collection in Florida, USA, without an import sticker affixed to the cover. A third copy turned up in Dublin, Ireland and offered for sale on eBay in May 2016. This copy sold for almost $540 shipped. A fourth copy was found in Ireland. All known copies contain the APL1 record. The date of the record is an estimate based on the other releases of that time.

Two copies have documented sales. On June 2, 2016, a copy with an import sticker, in VG+ condition sold for nearly $540 shipped.3 The second copy is from the Florida find mentioned above. It sold on eBay for $560.11 on Jun 25, 2016.4
