This is the earliest UK issue, with the Island logo & radial text in white at the head of the labels.
The 12-page newspaper gatefold-style sleeve has a heavyweight card construction of the record pocket, unlike later issues using a lighter card stock (which also have the same labels & later labels). Consequently, there is a noticeable paper weight difference between the 2 sleeve versions. The Chrysalis imprint appears on page 12. Later repress (2nd press) issues do not have the Island imprint on the labels; See: Issue without Island imprint labels (which are also a lighter weight vinyl).
