"This 12 LP boxe set was pressed in April 1981 & came with a 16-page booklet. Each LP has its own title. There were 1,000 box sets pressed but 565 were

seized in one raid & other legal problems netted an additional 100. There were also 25 "Silver Edition" sets pressed with each LP in a silver jacket

with 11" x 11" black & white slicks on the front & back & had deluxe bogus labels. Re-released (regular box set) as an import on "fz 4801-12) with a

black & white laminated cover with silver printing & some without the booklet. The source for this 1984 set was the original LPs sot the sound quality
