This is without a doubt the second pressing. I bought the black copy when I was 16 back in 1993. It was a number between 0 and 5000 (I don't have it anymore). On the front packaging it said limited to 5000 copies. The Yellow is number between 5001-10000 to indicate it is the second pressing. Both versions have a pictured disc. The Version with the cover art as the disc label in black and white is a re-release that came out in 1997. So again this is the second pressing not the third.
