About this copy: This copy of The Legend Comes Alive is a 1986 pressing on the CBS/Sony label.

This is technically a second issue of the LP, as there is a sticker on the back cover correcting the running order of side two.  The track listing on side two of the actual disc is incorrect.

The cover is M-, with sticker on the back cover correcting the side two track listing.

This album was issued without an obi or a lyric insert.

The disc is M-, with one or two spindle marks and light foxing on the labels, but no marks on the vinyl.  Clean disc!
