  Both the Canada and the US pressing got different back sleeves, a picture of the band sitting at a table. They also chose to have "The Chase" as the opening track and "AOS" was put on side 2. There is an interesting note in Alan Burridge Babylon book where he says "The Chase" was going to be released as a single but that appareltly never happened. I wonder if there are Acetates or test pressings of that single? The front sleeve also has a small Motorhead logo on the front just above Philthys head.

US copies with a cut corner is quite usual. There are also four different labels, three have the Mercury skyscraper label, version 1 has the Bronze logo to the left, version 2 has it to the right and version 3 has STEREO and side 2 to the left instead of right. Version 4 is the black label with the Mercury logo in red. My guess is that the black one is a later version.
