Rare original early 1970s Australian edition of the 1968 Apple label 4-track STEREO vinyl LP, issued exclusively down under by the World Record Club and housed in a unique front laminated picture sleeve with an olive green tinted image of the Quartet looking very cool indeed. The sleeve shows only the very faintest signs of wear and the vinyl looks barely played, retaining a wonderful shine over 35 years on – a real beauty!
