Unique to Belgium, this sleeve features one of Gered Mankowitz's "leotard" images shot for EMI in January, 1978. (Here are a few more frames from the same session...)
The sleeve was produced with a slight texture, and yes, the B-side image is upside down! (Sleeve scan and information courtesy of Boolbar.)
The A-side has a slightly different mix than the LP: it opens with Kate saying "He's here" 6 times.
