December Will Be Magic Again - UK 7" Single: First Issue
It can be a little more tricky trying to identify the differences between the first issue and the reissue as both are nearly identical, including the fact that both pictures sleeve are paper ones.
There are really only two major differences between both releases and the first one can be found on the back of the sleeve. If you take a look underneath the song credits for Warm and Soothing, you will see that additional credits are neatly placed underneath it. On the reissue these credits are widely spread out along the bottom of the sleeve, and some are partially obscured by the fold of the sleeve.
The other difference lies within the vinyl. First issue releases have the inscription "Happy Christmas" etched into the run off area on Side A. Reissues don't have this inscription.
