The only Subs LP released by RCA in Holland, the sleeve is almost identical to the UK release apart from the catalogue numbers on the back cover. It doesn't feature the PL 43423 number anywhere, has black RCA labels and a paper inner sleeve.

The photograph on the back cover was taken out the back of The Greyhound in Fulham, London, on the 26th of April 1980, just before the band went back on stage to play an encore for an under 20s matinee performance.
