I recently bought a copy of this Scandanavian/Swedish "This Year's Model" lp and was surprised that the picture of Costello performing on Saturday Night Live on the little television on the inner sleeve was removed. It is simply a grey screen - it was not done by a previous owner, it must be a copyright thing? Weird that no other versions have been "censored" to my knowledge. Anyone else get a copy like this?

The "Detectives" extra track on this release has been said to be a remix. Sounds like the regular version speeded up to me.
