There were 2 or more pressings on the original UK label. The 1st press included a large insert (later deleted) with a photo and an article by Dave Goodman titled "The Night I was Loathsome!"; the cover inside picture was in the right position while in a later press it was upside-down (with the shoe wrongly on the right side).
"Shakti Yoni is away at the Bananamoon Observatory keeping the bulge warm and studying new spells."

"This is a stereo record and should be played."

Strawberry Bricks Entry: 
This double-album has three things that make it legendary: An early live recording of Camel, a totally improvised set from Henry Cow and an example of Gong’s free form concert format. (The fourth side featured Global Trucking Village Company). Precious few were there at the time to see it all live, but here lies a chance to listen to a slice of the era, in then-real time (though the audio vérité of the Gong and Henry Cow sides remain in question; Gong was assembled from various concerts, including Tabarka Festival in Tunisia; while the Henry Cow side was recorded at Virgin’s The Manor Studio). The album was released to benefit the Greasy Truckers organization and was distributed in the UK by Island Records. It has never seen complete reissue on CD.
