Original vinyl copies released in the UK and Europe included an inner sleeve showing the group recording the LP. Initially there were two releases in the UK which both used the same Catalogue Number: AHALH 8007. One was manufactured in the UK with Ariola Hansa rainbow labels and was pressed on thick vinyl by Pye Records. The other manufactured in Germany which had 'black / silver labels with red '33' triangle and pressed using thinner quality vinyl with a slightly different Ariola Hansa Logo on the back of the sleeve.
