My copy has a cover with no 'worn' mark, so the image is pristine.

The sleeve is designed to mimic a well-worn original old soul sleeve, thus the ring wear image on front and back. In addition, the sides A & B have been reversed to mimic a misprint. By the way the UK version is the ONLY Version with the good low end! All other versions have no low end to speak of. Cheers Robert

Side one actually begins with Love for tender... and side 2 with I can't stand up for falling down....
The paper labels on the record confirm this as do the CD reissues.
I have a copy that has a large black & white poster.

Never realised until this moment that the mark on the front cover is part of the artwork!
