In 1972, the USA Label, Berkeley, released this version that had been pressed from a new set of master plates. The LP has the same track list as it's predecessor. It also uses much the same cover. The cover is a gatefold. The only differences from the earlier POPO cover is a reference to Berkeley of London on the back, and there are no pictures on the inside gatefold. This version is identified in gwa as 52Ca. The 2nd Berkeley release, in 1975, carried the same black and white matte finish cover as the original, but was issued as a single cover rather than a gatefold. The vinyl is black with standard black Berkeley labels. This 1975 LP is referred to as 52Cb. There were further releases that carried a blank white or light blue label after the stock labels had been depleted. It unclear whether these blank label releases were issued simultaneously with 52Cb, or were released later in 1975 or early 1976. While the latter is certainly a possibility, they were most probably issued at the same time as 52Cb. For this reason, we will identify them as 52Cb-bl. The bl indicates a blank label. While somewhat less desirable than the full label issues, it is not known exactly how many of these copies were issued. The label color is unimportant to all but a handful of hard-core collectors.
