1987 re-release featuring new black cover artwork. Stars names also added to cover with the caption “IT WAS GREAT WHEN IT ALL BEGAN” Vinyl groove etchings: Side A: “A PORKY PRIME CUT” Side 2: just the words “PORKY” & “ORLAKE” {NB: “Porky” is actually the legendary hallmark of George Peckham, a record cutter from the UK who seems to have cut masters for almost every band in Britain over the last 30 years. In the ‘60s, he was The Beatles original chief ‘Apple’ cutter and tends to leave some sort of cryptic three or four-word message, along with the phrase 'A Porky Prime Cut'. Peckham also cut the masters for some of Nell’s early singles!
