Per labels:

"Manufactured in Australasia under licence from R.C.A. Limited, Special Products Division."

Per back cover:

"Produced in association with RCA Records."

"This album distributed exclusively by K-tel International (N.Z.) Ltd.
24 Emily Place, Auckland, New Zealand
(A subsidiary of K-tel International)"

This version differs from other Australia & New Zealand releases as follows:

One different version states "Manufactured in Australia" rather than Australasia on the labels (see label scans in images).

Another different version is a clever counterfeit, It has less space between the main text and the green K-tel logo on the back cover, and then four lines of text rather than three underneath the logo, But big difference is a false P.O. Box address for K-Tel NZ (see back cover detail in images).
