The vinyl labels on this release are the generic green (side A) and red (side B) Virgin labels, with the Virgin script logo in white in the lower right. The script logo is also on the rear of the sleeve (in black).
There are none of the slightly goofy credits on this release as are found on others (e.g. "This stereo record cannot be played on old tin boxes no matter what they are fitted with.").
