Released in 1979 on 2LP and double cassette and released in 1986 on 2CD. The LP issue has a gatefold sleeve and two printed innersleeves with a story on each innersleeve.
I've once heard of a rumour that a picture disc (2LP, limited to 300 copies?) issue exists, but so far I've never seen one.
Japan has a green and red vinyl edition (which was the normal issue, the black vinyl edition was the limited one!).
Columbia has a 2LP issue with the first disc on blue vinyl, the second disc on black vinyl. A version with two blue discs has also surfaced. It's unknown if this is a test or miss pressing or just another normal Columbian issue.
Countries like Korea and Argentina omitted the track Get Down, Make Love.
New Zealand had a unique double cassette re-issue (from 1986 / 1987) with a unique sleeve.
The USA has a 1991 CD re-issue with no bonus tracks. Available with and without a longbox.
Re-issued on CD in Europe and Japan in 1993-1994.
Re-issued in Japan on CD in 2001 with improved sound quality.
Re-issued in September 2003 in Europe with the same quality as the Japanese 2001 re-issue.
Re-issued in Japan on CD in October 2004 with a card sleeve (using the 2001 remasters). The package also includes a mini innersleeve like the original UK vinyl issue.
