European copies have a different sleeve to US copies and the album was released in francophone territories, such as Canada and in Europe, with more French songs but with the same catalogue number. The early copies did not have a sleeve title but the disc was later titled 'Amoureuse' to capitalise on the hit opening song and the European sleeve photo was a slightly different pose and with different typography. Note that the disc labels omitted accents from the letters in the French titles.

Two different versions of this disc. The US (North American) version with the straight portrait cover (and a gatefold sleeve) and another version for other territories with the band photographed in a wood. The track listings are slightly different as well.

The quad version follows the US version and eventually so did the non-US territories.

US Promo copies included an insert card saying 'British Rock in the Royal Tradition'. Early US copies of this album (possibly just the first 1000) had a gold embossed cover. A Quad edition (EQ 5064) is listed by Goldmine but I have no firm evidence that it exists. Please correct me if I'm wrong. UK release (on EMI) released 13/07/1973 but with a slightly different cover.

The band's name in this photograph is a sticker, presumably because the real logo for the band was obscure enough that a dim DJ might call them panther, or something similar.
