    I know I purchased my copy in the late 80s, and it was new. Presumably it is one of the UK 1987 editions, but no! In fact, I cannot match the labels to any listed here! Green, with the artists' faces, but the wording under the green line is "Manufactured in the UK by EMI Records Limited." I guess I have yet another variant - and all I wanted to do was sell my copy.
