The Dutch sleeve shown here is identical to the UK version, except for the small catalog number on the front and the color bands on the rear. Sleeves with matte and glossy finishes were both issued in The Netherlands. Matte sleeves appear much darker in tone than the glossy ones. (Scan and information courtesy of Bart.)
The A-side has a slightly different mix than the LP: it opens with Kate saying "He's here" 6 times.
