Wow - UK 7" Single: First Issue
First issue releases come in a thick card sleeve. The photo, colour and lettering are much sharper than they appear on the reissue. In fact, on the reissue these aspects are a little more faded with a hazy looking blur.
The back of the sleeve has a rectangular cut-out opening with angled cuts, rounded folded edges and a circular EMI logo - all key areas that differ completely on the reissue sleeve.
Although both the first issue and reissue records look the same, the typeset differs on both releases. Also, first issue releases have the inscription "Thank You Emily" etched into the run off vinyl on Side A. Reissues do not have this inscription.
