Although this repress is supposed to reproduce the original 12", the artwork is far from accurate.
The centre box is just white (rather than pale grey/cream)
The blue stripe is considerably wider and the black square is much nearer the edge of the sleeve.
They also omitted the red "League" diamond from the bottom corner of the back cover

Confirmed from copy in hand that this edition contains the original mix of In A Lonely Place
(ie digital thunderclap at 3:20 and again at 5:15 and then none between 5:30 and 6:15)
