Made in Holland
This is the 'correct' version without misspelling on the back cover, with the correct speed "45 RPM" on the labels, without the misspelling of "Meat Is Murder" on the b-side label, and with the following credits on the labels:
Both sides: All songs published by WARNER BROS. MUSIC LTD.
℗ 1985 ROUGH TRADE/MEGADISC RECORDS & TAPES B.V.
B-side: All songs written by Morrissey & Marr
At least two 'alternate'/misprinted versions exist:
Version 1: "Shakespeare's Sister" is incorrectly written as "Shakespear's Sister" on the cover backside.
Version 2: Wrong speed "33 ⅓ RPM" printed on both labels and "Meat is Murder" is mistyped as "Heat is Murder" on the b-side label. The labels are also slightly different compared to this 'correct' version and version 1. "Shakespeare's Sister" is spelled correctly on cover backside.
