My version is different. What it distinguishes from this version here is the following:
- catalogue number on the spine 96 02111
- mine has a small canadian maple leaf in the top left corner on the back of the cover
- mine has a barcode identifyie in the top right corner on the back of the cover (0 7559-60211-1)
- the copyrights info on the bottom on the back of the cover are written in slightly different order
- the bottom right corner of back of the inner sleeve (where the lyrics are) doesn't have the part mentioning 'For Australia & New Zealand lyrics reprinted by permission of Rondor Music" '
- the top right corner of the back of the inner sleeve (where the lyrics are) has the catalogue numer written 'ASYLUM 96 02111'
Anyone has the same version?

No issues with surface noise on the copy I own. The quality is actually spectacular! One of the best vinyl records I own.

This was never mistakenly released nor was Island label owned by WEA records in New Zealand. The record was pressed in Australia and a limited number were imported to NZ for sale however, before release date, WEA lost the rights to release the record and Island (released through Festival Records in NZ) picked them up. Staff at WEA were given 1 copy each before the entire pressing run was destroyed - and yes, some have likely sold theirs over time (I still have mine but it has a cover printed in the USA not Australia). I personally took them to the dump (as we did with all our deletions due to the high sales tax of 40% on 'luxury items' levied in the days before GST) and had a large grader drive over them to break them ensuring that if they were dug up they couldn't be sold. It is well documented why WEA/Asylum lost the rights - they stuffed Tom Waits around and initially refused to release the record and he got a better deal elsewhere. In my opinion it is best LP.

Shame you can't buy this album here anymore (not that I don't understand why). I bought it here a while back from a friendly Russian seller. Never listened to it but just loved the cover.

A silent, flawless pressing - with what is perhaps one of the lowest noise floors of any modern vinyl release I own - and very rich and deep soundwise, presumably cut in-house on DMM by Record Industry from a high-quality digital file. I got mine cheap as chips at the Yonge & Dundas HMV way back in 2011 - it was quite the find, to say the least. The good news is this same pressing still seems to be in print 8 years later, so if you run across a copy, I'd recommend picking it up!

I assume my copy is this one, except mine got a regular Back to Black sticker (black one), not the yellow one as seen on the cover in the images for this release. Same download card, matrixes, sleeve beside that.

I bought my copy on Ebay (13 years ago) from New Zealand, I think this is an Australian & New Zealand version of this fantastic album. Collectors' item. I hope it was helpful.
