Sleeve notes:

1973 reissued 2LP set of The Pink Floyd’s first two albums originally issued on the Columbia label (part of the EMI group of labels). Gatefold sleeve, designed and photographed by Hipgnosis, no date code or printer’s credit. Covers were later censored with stickers covering the nude model. The first pressing sleeve features Dr Phang dentists (a genuine business) who objected to the usage. This was replaced with a different image for the next pressing.
