additional information
The colour inlay folded out to reveal the full album credits, lyrics and colour artwork.

Only a limited number were produced as the sleeve design was later changed to the "band" version. Strangely it still remains the most common version.

This "band" version of the sleeve replaced the "graphic" (see above) version a couple of months after release. It has now become the official version of the Real Life artwork. Oddly, it remains less common than the "blue" version.
