(Volumes One and Two), with one track removed from each LP.
The track listing shown in the lead post is correct only for non-USA reissues on the CBS label. There were several in different countries, most with different catalog numbers (see below*).
The USA release on the Columbia label had the sides in the original order (with a few small track changes), as shown by the front cover track list (and as indicated with complete discographical details in my posts for the single LPs
). The two records would play in the order listed above when stacked-and-flipped on a record changer.
