Front Cover
 This LP is a true enigma wrapped in a mystery! It was most likely produced in England in 1971, however, it may also have come out of the USA. It could also have surfaced early as 1970. There is uncertainty to it's origins. Of course, the manufacturer is unknown. Everything about this piece is strange! First off is the title. It is not known why the LP is subtitled 'Uncut'. Most probably, it was released after the English single LP version, therefore claiming to be the full, original release; or the 'Uncut' version. The matrix is also an oddity.
The LPs were pressed from an original set of master plates that were created from a taped copy of the TMQ version of GWW. The quality suffers because of the fact of the vinyl being recorded.
Now things get even stranger! Even though this is a taped copy, It has been slightly altered! Side two omits 'Poor Lazarus'. Side four omits 'I shall be released'... but adds the official CBS 45 release of 'Mixed up confusion' that itself had been an outtake from the 1962 recording sessions. Why pirate the 45 rpm? This would again point to an English release where the 45 would not have been as common.
'Mixed up confusion' would have been a much better title for this strange and unique LP!
