The initial Jamaican release came on a Winro label in a plain sleeve; the one illustrated above originally adorned the counter in the Daddy Kool Records shop in Hanway Street, London. Customers were probably a little disappointed when they learned it wasn't for sale and left with a copy in a plain white sleeve instead.
