12 ISW 285 is just the number for the Cardiff version (W for Wales). The Edinburgh version, for instance, is 12 ISE 285.
Source: I have both these releases.

Can someone verify that the records actually has live versions. As far as I can remember (I don't have a functioning turntable) the four tour souvenir releases all have the standard studio recordings of the three songs.
