Buyers and sellers (not to mention the color blind) need to beware when it comes to this release. If the logo on the front side of the sleeve is purple or pink, it is almost definitely not a first pressing. The first pressing has a peach colored logo. See the following links for a comparison:

Here the first pressing is on the left.

Here the first pressing is on the very bottom.
