  1. I have the single for When It’s Love, but not that cool picture sleeve!

    • I am always finding different cover sleeve versions on the internet for so many 45’s and CD singles… maybe it depended on the country?

      If I find this version when I’m out hunting for METAL, I’ll snag it for you, cuz you ROCK \m/\m/
