Released in January 1988 on LP, CD and cassette in the UK and Europe and in March 1988 on LP, CD and cassette in the USA. The USA also had a longbox CD issue.
The UK and European CD issues feature an extra track: The 2nd Shelf Mix. Freddie Mercury has the lead vocals on Heaven For Everyone.
The USA and Canadian LP, CD and cassette issues have a different sleeve, different track listing and a different extra track: Feel The Force. Roger Taylor has the lead vocals on Heaven For Everyone.
The German cassette issue had for some reason the USA sleeve, but the UK track listing. However, Rough Justice has the outro which is also found on the USA releases.
The UK and European LP issue had a printed innersleeve containing lyrics and photos.
Sweden had a unique 2LP issue with the Shove It album and on the second disc a unique remix of Shove It.
