(No, I don't know why my push-out centre was pushed (or fell) out ... it's too long ago !)

I don't usually bother with import versions, but as you can see below, I did with this one.
Firstly, an American edition from 1988, on Capitol S7-18902 red vinyl ... which is marked "For Jukeboxes Only !", then
I hadn't seen a Beatles record from Nigeria before, and being as it was on sale at only 1, I bought what for me was an oddity.

And below both of those, the picture disc version released in England as part of the,
"It Was Twenty Years Ago" series, on 9th June 1986.
