Maybe the SR label would like to change their artwork before the release. My eyes aren't that good but I think the current title on the cover is: Setting The Stardard. What's a stardard???

I take those AR releases from these labels always with reservations. In this case we have an obviously in a great hurry designed cover (therefore the mis-spelling) and perhaps a wrong date. There`s a CDR floating around with exactly the same setlist but this one is supposed to be from August 18. 1971 DS (exactly 24 hours later). The makers from SR records announce this one as completely new to the collectors...we`ll see..
