What exactly is the title of the first track on this album? Is it "Bicentennial Present" or "Bicentennial Presentation" Both variations are found throughout many different sources.

I'm not going into the garage to find the LP, but the original CD issue says "Presentation."

Since Meadow Of Infinity has two versions on LP, Herr Baumann may have changed the translation of his original meaning.

Am I bovvered? Don't be daft - I just love the music!

My LP reads "Present," which kind of makes sense since it was released in 1976, the bicentennial of America. Whatever the title, though, it's a great album, particularly side two.

This is interesting. Yes, the vinyl editions read, "Present" but CD reissues somehow got it as "Presentation." I wonder how that happens?

It would seem so, although there is always the possibilty it was intentionally renamed for the cd release. I can't see PB coming out of hiding, to let us know though!
