COMMENTS: US BOOTLEG WITH PLAIN COVER AND PAPER INSERT. THE FIRST AND MOST COMMON TAKRL PINK FLOYD RELEASE. TAKRL DID NOT INTRODUCE THEIR CUSTOM LABELS UNTIL THE RELEASE AFTER THIS (CAT STEVENS TAKRL 1904) SO THE FIRST PRESSINGS HAVE PLAIN LABELS.

ALL ORIGINAL US TAKRL ISSUES HAD A 'TOUR 1903 A/B' MATRIX NUMBER. SOME LATER COPIES (ON THE DESSIE RECORDS LABEL) HAD 'DESSIE A/B GR L29708' MATRIX NUMBERS AND ANOTHER RE-ISSUE HAD 'P1 532A/B LL789' MATRIX NUMBERS. YET ANOTHER RE-ISSUE WAS PRESSED FROM THE 'ECLIPSED' PLATES WITH A MATRIX NUMBER OF 'ECL SIDE 3/4' AND PLAIN WHITE LABELS.
