No significant label changes, or versions of this disc at all, all originals should look as above.
But, the sleeve although the same as previous releases on the front, had a change on the back, therefore I have shown the back of the sleeve above.
Each sleeve carried an advert for Morphy-Richards hairdryers, featuring "Fran the Fan" in her latest episode.

And below, the picture disc version released in England as part of the,
"It Was Twenty Years Ago" series, on 5th August 1986.
