Carsten Meinert Quartet To you LP 1968

The first time I heard this danish LP ,about ten years ago it was like a revelation for me,it is still one of the best jazz records from Europe and I cherish this one a lot.
Musically it reminds me a lot of Coltrane and P.Sanders however it is so powerful that it just stands well alone as a landmark in Danish jazz.
For the collector I can reveil that there are 2 different pressing, first Mr.Meinert pressed it on his own label M.S. records and the label is red, more solid vinyl, second pressing possibly the same year is on blue MS/ spectator label. The first red label is almost impossible to find and he did not press many on that one.
Need I tell you that the sleeve is amazing?, it does not really look like a jazz lp more like an early progressive lp.
