Matrix notes:

6 3 6 0 0 5 2   1 Y // 1  ▼ 4 2 0     1   1   3
6 3 6 0 0 5 2   2 Y // 1  ▼ 4 2 0     1   1   1
Notes:
There is another so-called ‘counterfeit’ copy around, also known as an Italian ‘reissue’ that has a different front cover:
6360-052-front2
The label and inner gatefold look nearly identical but the matrix on this version is different so overall it’s easy to differentiate from the original.
Matrix (stamped):
6 3 6 0 0 5 2 – A
6 3 6 0 0 5 2 – B

  1. hi..i have noticed some with red glasses have still sold for over £200 and are stated by the sellers as uk copies..

  2. But all miss the most important thing: that’s the only Vertigo “Swirl” album WITHOUT the legendary logo on the front-cover!!

    • Not quite: John Dummer Band “Blue” 6360 055 also does not have the logo on the front. It appears on the inner gatefold. Also Magna Carta In Concert (6360 068) – the logo is on the back cover. Also Beggar’s Opera “Pathfinder” (6360 073) – logo on rear section of the poster sleeve. Also Ian Carr “Belladonna” (6360 076) – logo on back cover.
