Wow - Italian 7" Single

The Italian 7" Single for Wow has completely different artwork to its UK counterpart. Admittedly, I do find the overall appearance of this picture sleeve a little boring. It's nice because it's different, but somehow it just looks slapped together.

The biggest disappointment is the quality of the sleeve. Even though it's slightly more thicker than the Italian sleeve for Wuthering Heights, it's still a very cheap quality sleeve with a very flat matte finish. These kinds of covers are very susceptible to edge wear, staining and creasing. You can clearly see some of the typical problems this type of sleeve can have from my scans.

The record labels on this release are similar to the UK ones at the time.

I would still recommend getting this one, especially if you're into collecting variants with unique covers.
