Side 2 has a Side 1 label. Sides 1, 3, and 4 all have their correct labels.

Side 2 still plays normally (it is NOT as though Side 1 was pressed on both sides).

Possibly one-of-a-kind.

Publishing credits in two lines on all four labels.

Discs found without a jacket. Existence of "Freak Out Hot Spots" blurb inside the gatefold that originally came with them is unknown.
