Cover Front: RCA Victor logo and catalog number in upper right. With our without white border around the edges of the cover.
Cover Back: Number at upper right. Previously released as LPM-1707 lower left corner.1

The second cover variation with about a half inch white border around the front of the cover was just discovered on November 1, 2020. The white border extends around the spline so that the text is on the white border too. This stand out was quite elusive and the numbers suggest that it could be rare. You be the judge.

This release may or may not contain the OBI "original banner included" that reads: A collectible The Definitive Rock Classic Restored to original MONO digitally remastered, quality pressing, on heavy virgin vinyl. May have a Best Buy sticker in place of the banner. The cover is almost always found in the thin white stock cardboard, however, copies do exist in the thick brown stock cardboard.
