New Zealand release of the bands debut album on RCA. Identical to the Australian release apart from having 'Made In New Zealand' printed on the spine, another catalogue number printed in the bottom left hand corner of the back cover; 'NZ180' and differently designed labels.

The sleeve features the same artwork as the UK release although the spade on the back cover is coloured in completely with no white detail. The record comes with a plain plastic inner sleeve.
