1st Original Issue - issued in a gatefold sleeve with thick paper inner sleeve with printed lyrics & band photo of just 4 members, on Jet label with yellow / pink light beams.
The 1st Edition didn't come with a Poster. Many
fans wrote to the Fanclub asking why Mik, Hugh and Melvyn were not shown on the sleeve.
So a 2nd Edition was issued at the end of July, with a poster using images from the "Discovery“ Video Sessions from of 14th May, as it was necessary to calm down the fans.
The Official Fan-Club Newsletter explained this as away by using the UK VAT increases of July 1979, saying that Jet Records decided to put a Poster in, so the fans would get more for their money. This was a nice explanation, but of course not true. !
1st UK/Euro CD issue by Jet Records.
Later issues had a barcode on the rear cover and different CD text layout.
