1965 (year of release) UK mono pressing. Hard to call it a first because of all the variations. KT tax labels. Numerous marks but no skips, loud pops, or repetitive ticks, but there is some unobtrusive underlying crackle.
For instance, the largish scratch readily visible in the photo at 2 o’clock isn’t audible. Plays nice enough. Slight discoloration on the intact cover.
