UK releases. The 12" had one additional track, "The Dark End of the Street," and came with a limited edition poster. It appears there was a version without the poster as well. Normally, I would assume that the posters were just lost, but there do seem to be copies that do not have the poster hype sticker. All copies were on black vinyl.

In addition, there were several CD versions. The U.S. and European versions came with alternate artwork (see above). There were rumors that a 7" also existed with this artwork, but it appears that those were just rumors. All CD versions are easy to find and inexpensive.
