Additional note: Some of the Fortune LP's were reissued in the 1970's. According to a discussion on The Record Collectors Guild webring http://www.recordcollectorsguild.org/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=267880), the original has the "deep groove" outer ring. Price guides list reissues as being on thinner vinyl but actually there is little difference in vinyl thickness between the original and reissues.
