CD detail  
Different international
catalogue number
Additional comments Card sleeve. The upper side of the CD is gold coloured. Remarkable detail is that I have found two versions of this edition, both with gold coloured discs, but with a difference in the international catalogue number which is mentioned on the backcover below the barcode; 872 029-2 and 000 000-0. Remarkable to see this strange 000 000-0 number. Maybe it's an early pressing, a strange promo or just a mispint? Apart from this, both the card sleeves and CD's are identical. UK edition.
Variations There were two editions released of this CD-single. In both cases, the card sleeves (produced by the Polygram Supply Center in The Netherlands) are identical. The CD's are different though:

-  a gold coloured disc, UK edition
-  a silver coloured disc, international edition
