Originally released on the Vertigo label with the wording "Vertigo' below the spindle hole & 'a philips record product' text. It was relesased with a gatefold cover & with an 'Swirl' inner Sleeve.

This version, released in Japan has the Philips generic blue label on the vinyl & reads SFX-7203 (VO-6) Made in Japan. The label also credites the Nippon Phonogram Co. Ltd., Tokyo as the manufacturers. Like the original UK version this also comes housed in a gatefold sleeve, although rather than the credits, black background, logo & cross. this one is white & has a small biography in Japanese text & song titles on one side & all the lyrics on the other... all the lyrics are however, written in English.

Track B1 is a Crow (4) cover and track B3 is an The Aynsley Dunbar Retaliation cover.

First issue, sold for 1950 yen. The price is stated on the obi
