First on front and label, second on backcover. First German pressing and shell is relabeled for export to Switzerland. The original has relabeled by a red, semi translucent sticker at the upper lef corner, covering (is nor really covering) "SMO 83790" with "Special Edition" an at the backside the Swiss Number. In Switzerland was sold as SMO 983 790 at "Ex Libris". At the labels, below ZTOX 5581, both sided it's written "SPECIAL-EDITION".

Relevant features of this release: perimeter printing beginning with: "Alle Rechte Des Plattenherstellers..."; Jerry Leiber mis-spelled 'Lieber' on labels (A7); old type 'ST33' indicator (sharp '33'). Labels are yellow, but the mistakes ar 1:1 taken from die Original german version. Also de vinyls are simply relabeled by the manufacturer before exporting. So it shows the original run out code of the German version (YEX-142-1 and YEX-143-1).

Maybe somebody can help me... i think i have this Version... because the Cover is exactely the same as the pictures here... also the Stamp in the Runouts is the same... YEX-142-1 and YEX-143-1... but the Label on the Vinyl is not Yellow... its the Normal Bronze Round Frame with Red Letters... but as well printed SPECIAL-EDITION on it....

anybody has the same?
