I have a version, which I am having trouble identifying. It has a laminated front cover, the A2/B3 matrix, no inner sleeve, just the original poly lined generic job, the back cover has white reaction in the lower left, white box stereo in the upper right, side 2 track list on the rear of the cover is in white. I bought this as a first press but am struggling to work out if it is or isn't. Any help? I may end up adding this to Discogs as it definately is not mentioned on this site anywhere.
