  The album was released 20th of October in the UK. This was right before Polydor took over Bronze from EMI which means that the first pressings, and the most common ones, have “EMI Records Limited” printed on the label. In the small print on the back cover, top left corner, it is stated “Distributed by EMI”. The inner sleeve seems to vary. Some copies have a plain white one, others have different print with information about how to take care of your vinyl etc.

The Bronze EMI releases were pressed by Hayes pressing plant for EMI at Middlesex near London.

I have seen copies on Ebay (seller mister_kipps, item listed in March 2010 and in July 2010) described as "with sticker on the back stating that it is a complimentary item from Roger Bolton at Bronze Records".

Mick Stevenson (2011) also lists that there were a "Special edition with 10" St Valentines".
