The instrumental version of Running Up That Hill on this disc has never been issued in any other format. (See non-LP page for more info...)
The cover images are identical to the UK release, but the jacket is heavier stock and the B-side titles are reversed.
This particular copy has a gold promo stamp in the upper right corner, but it's identical to the stock issue in all other respects.
