Released on the Pink i labels, in a textured gatefold cover. ℗1970 Tracklist (above), wrong and incomplete, but resulting from inner cover layout text, text form (tracks titles in capitals) and, unequivocally, from side B label, can be considered of historical significance for early UK issues, as side B apparently begins with an untitled 'hidden track'. Below an updated Side B tracklist, showing the real content on disc: B1 Peace - A Theme (Fripp) B2 Cat Food (Fripp, McDonald, Sinfield) B3 The Devil's Triangle - including: B3a Merday Morn (Fripp, McDonald) B3b Hand of Sceiron (Fripp) B3c Garden of Worm (Fripp) B4 Peace-An End (Fripp, Sinfield) B1 'Peace-A Theme' was absent as a title on all UK early issues (no mention of it on cover and label), but it appeared (on cover and label) as track '1' on some first issues outside UK (e.g.US Atlantic [r5275119] ) and on many more reissues. B1 position was taken here by ‘Cat Food’ instead. Actual B3 ‘The Devil's Triangle’ did not appear on record cover and label as a main title including subtitles (a,b,c), but as an indipendent track ('2' on label); the 3 subtitles (also looking like indipendent instrumentals) were numbered '3'.,'4'.,'5'. on label. ‘Peace-An End’ was '6' on label, but it should have been track '4'. Only German Stateside 1970 release [r1391596] , among early issues, seems to show on side B label the complete and real sequence, correct timings included. More info on 'release history'. Mel Collins of "Circus" appears by courtesy of Transatlantic Records, Gordon Haskell appears by courtesy of C.B.S. Records. (There are two similar Pink i labels UK releases: [r14838022] also pressed by Phonodisc Ltd. and [r5821228] with textured labels, pressed by Orlake Records). The first UK pressing of this A1/B1 matrix contains withdrawn version of 'In The Wake Of Poseidon (Including Libra's Theme)', which is longer than that of later pressings (8'26" vs. 7'56"). This longer version was reissued for the first time in CD as a part of 40th Anniversary Set from [url=http://www.discogs.com/release/2506802]UK[/url], [url=http://www.discogs.com/release/11701919]US[/url], and [url=http://www.discogs.com/release/6138943]Japan[/url] in 2010.
