Lower manufacturing quality compared to the UK versions, not gatefold and fragile glossy printed inner sleeves. Hype sticker was applied to blister and is therefore rare to come by.

No hype sticker when sealed. To make sure of the version: lacquer cut at Masterdisk from side A to C (JD in dead wax), side D at Sterling Sound (JR in dead wax).

Part of Island's Back To Black series. Despite its 180g vinyl, the sound is terribly flat, highly unlikely that the source was the master! Glossy sleeve (too dark), glossy inners and charcoal black labels.

American reissue with black labels. Since it was pressed at United Records Pressing, if you find a Ⓤ in the dead wax, you know that's the one you have. Another version exists with a stamped pattern from a Czech pressing plant called GZ Media. Both versions were sold in the USA.

Back sleeve reads: "Made in Dublin"

Thick gatefold cardboard sleeve with a textured and grainy matte finish, the records are pressed on a solid light blue 180g wax. Labels are the same colors than the 1996 run.

1000 copies were distributed all over Europe by different actors, or is it 1000 copies per country? Hard to know.

Source is the 2016 European remaster that was made to commemorate the 20 years of Endtroducing that came in a 6LP box.
