The catalog# SD-7270 appears on the labels, whilst the catalog# SD 7270 appears on the rear sleeve.
This release varies from the other Australian Bette Midler, self-titled release in the database in that the cat# containing a dash (ie. '-' between the SD and the 7270) is what appears here on the labels, whereas the other release doesn't feature a 'dashed' cat# at all (being SD7270 on the labels).
As well as this, there are some minor text layout variations on the labels, such as the Rights Society for track B4 (Surabaya Johnny) being here for GEMA-Control, whilst the other release it is for GEMA/MCPS. However, in all other respects, including the Runouts, the two releases are otherwise near-identical.

This version appears to be a Reissue.
