- [r=6593918]: a reissue with identical runouts but with Parlophone Records Ltd. as the owner of the copyrights
- [r=7615093]: 2008 reissue with EMI Records Ltd. as the owner of the copyrights but different runouts
- [r=13247325]: 2017 reissue with EMI Records Ltd. AND Parlophone Records Ltd. as the owners of the copyrights and different runouts
- [r=16177934]: a Worldwide reissue with EMI Records Ltd. AND Parlophone Records Ltd. as the owners of the copyrights, different runouts and "Printed in The Netherlands" on the back cover.

How to know if you have a copy of this original European 2000 release or a later reissue/repress:

- Was released WITHOUT shrink wrap - Anyone trying to sell a "sealed" copy is selling a repress, not the original press
(however, it is possible that some copies sold in the US may have been shrink wrapped)
- Check image number 7 showing the spine of the outer sleeve
- Different fonts are used on the spine
- Digits should be smaller than letters
- More space "between" digits and letters, and also more space in "space between" digits
- Sharper text (since not scanned and reprinted)
