Different album covers and track lenghts

The album was released in Europe on several labels in 85 and in the US on Elektra (WEA) in 86 with different album covers. The first EU only release in 85 was recorded at the Morning studios in Milan and featured a red cover on some issues and a blue cover (unceratain) on other issues, all with the same design. The UK release got a very different cover (see beneath). On all these issues Petrus was both the producer (with Kay Williams) and execuitive producer. According to the US only release in 86 however Earl Monroe was the executive producer and Kay Williams the producer. The album was also recorded in the Castle studios in Milan instead of Morning studios in Milan. It also featured two longer versions of two songs. The cover of the US release had like the one from the UK a completely different design.
