Leave Home – the first pressings

It's not easy to sort out all the different pressings of the LP's. This is an attempt to list the first pressings of Leave Home, an album that came out in far more countries than the first LP. On top of that there is the Carbona not glue-controversy, when the record company replaced the song to avoid a lawsuit. Although the song did come out in most countries. The oddest release is perhaps the spanish, where the record company chosed to remove Now I wanna be a good boy, instead of Carbona note glue, and replace it with Sheena is a punk rocker!
