Notes
Recorded between August to September 1977 at Studio Hljóðriti, Hafnarfjörður. Total length: 29:35 
About 6000 copies were manufactured. 

Track A2: the cover of 'Your Kiss Is Sweet' originally performed by Syreeta. The writer credit is given as "Erlent" on release ("Foreign song" in Icelandic). 
Tracks A4 and B4 are instrumentals. 
Track B3: the cover of 'The Fool On The Hill' by The Beatles. 
Track B5: the cover of 'Christopher Robin' by Melanie Safka. 

? This is the ORIGINAL 1977 RELEASE: it doesn't have "Limited Edition of 1000 Copies" writing on the back like the black vinyl reissue from 90s or red, green, white & blue colour vinyl bootleg copies that were made later in 2006. Original cover is significantly sharper and brighter than copies, but that doesn't mean the copies are bad - they are Ok. There are also numerous CD bootlegs available, but the only other format original version is on cassette.

Limited Edition of 1000 Copies. 

Most copies in circulation today are bootlegs with the same cat#. These are usually easily recognizable by the fact that "LIMITED EDITION 1000 COPIES" is printed on the back cover, and/or that the vinyl is colored (non-black). 

This re-release on black vinyl (unlike later bootlegs on color vinyl) has the original insert with lyrics and credits. - note: riped from my silver factroy pressed bootleg red cd, + re-encoded to AAC-M4A [superiour björklossless sound] by
