This Danish issue was made from the UK matrixes and hosted in a UK Garrods & Lofthouse sleeve. Only difference I can spot is the Danes used the older rainbow label design with the logo to the left insted of on top. While the American 12 track version of Vol. 2 concentrated on earlier stuff recorded 1962-65 the British chosed to do a 14 track with a lot more up to date cuts, making it a much better album for its time which also showed in the sales - US barely reaching top 50 on Billboard while the UK got to #3 in England. I'm not going into the Capitol sixties stereo mess - true, duophonic or rechanneled - and how that shows on each song here. Just saying larger part of the cuts are true stereo and non of the others sounds bad or disturbing. On the contrary - the audio is great, big and clear, and I can enjoy some of the best from one of the best US bands in all its beauty. So even if not all true mixes - still very good. First US on Capitol/Starline (T/DT 2706). Premiere Danish had label as shown here and laminated flip/back cover. (BÅB*) (CCÖ*)
