It was released as Damned (again, no idea why the "The" was dropped) and produced by Shel Talmy who had produced The Kinks, The Who, and The Easybeats to name but a few.
The label had these words written on the B-Side of the disc: Easily Destructable Stereo and NOT FOR SALE
Special snob collectors artifact of no historical/cultural value. Play it today. Throw it away. Why sell 'em, when you can give 'em away.
