Reissued copies used the 'palm trees' sleeve design.

It is alleged that initial copies of this album were released in a cardboard gatefold sleeve.  To date, I have never seen this version so suspect this may not be true.

A limited edition double CD was also rumoured but never released.  The additional disc was planned to include a selection of cover versions performed acoustically by Miles Hunt.  Where the rumours for the second disc originated is unclear as many of the tracks have still, even to this date, never actually been recorded!  Those tracks that had been recorded were eventually released on future singles from the album.
