Surfaced June 2006.
There are a number of differences between the original and the reproduction:
reproduction of the cover is not as sharp as the original 1976 release. There
is a slight difference in the shading / colouring. The original pink outlines
are brown on the reproduction.
The reproduction has no necklace on the disc.
On the reproduction,
"SEX A" and "SEX B" is etched into the runout grooves of the
A & B sides respectively. On the original the EMI catalogue number was etched
into the grooves.
The "label" on the reproduction is pressed straight
into the plastic centre. The original had a paper label.
