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.

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.
