Quo's US debut comes with a number of label variants. Many unsold copies found their way over from the States after the success in the UK of Piledriver, they were plentiful in the London record shops for a pound each.
As an interesting non-vinyl item, we have included an image below of the reel to reel tape that was produced in the US for this release
