Comes in a Gatefold sleeve

Printer lyric inner sleeve

Rear of sleeve states: "Interepak by Shorewood Packaging Co Ltd England" written in same handwriting as the rest of the text on the sleeve. Interepak is a mis-spelling of Interpak. Another (later, but otherwise identical) version exists with a different packaging credit: Thriller
This version is missing the rear sleeve credit '* Co-Produced By Michael Jackson'.

Hmm, I have this version (Interepak, 57 on the rear sleeve, and the Variant 2 matrix as above) bit it DOES list MJ as co-producer.
