I think that there were 2 covers for the Snow Country release, the one that you have posted and another which is exactly the same except with a blue background. The one you have posted is the rarer of the two, if I remember correctly.

Yep, this is the UK mega rare version and the blue one is the Dutch slightly less mega rare version. 8)

Yep the version photod here is like the mega mega mega .... mega rare version. A blue cover which is the dutch version & the white cover which is the copy still quite rare though. Average song though i have it on a bootleg from 1987 at hammersmith oden with Peaches cencerd version & No more heroes radio edit.

The bootleg 'white cover' comes in two versions - one with a blue pic of JJ and one with a red one. The red one (allegedly) being the rarer off these two.

There is also a Russian postcard release (if I remember correctly, with a completely different pic)
Allow me to re-arrange your face, sometimes I'd really like to get to know you better
