I should have bought the"real" cd when I was in London, but I had already spent waaay too much on other cds. Oh well. Should have gotten the UK strokes cd too...much better cover.

I wanted the Boy CD, but I didn't want it with the band on the cover. So when my sister went to Canada, I made her promise to look around for a copy with the original cover. She found it. I think I just might buy an Irish pressing while in Ireland though...

I have both cds, but my vinyl copy is the one with the band on it...

Something I noticed though. My canadian cd (with band on cover) counts the tracks An Cat Dubh/ Into The Heart as one. Meaning that the cd has 10 tracks. My copy with the little boy (Peter Rowan ??) on the cover, however counts An Cat Dubh/ Into The Heart as two seperate songs, the cd has 11 tracks. Anyone else noticed something similar ? How many tracks on your Boy cds ?

Gee...I had no idea it was so difficult for North Americans to get the one with the boy on the cover.


I have 3 copies, 2 LPs and 1 CD, all of them with the boy.

I have both but I also have another one that's a cardboard tri-fold. It's got the picture of the band on the cover.

I don't think that I've ever seen the one with the boy on the cover. Is it the same boy that is on the cover of War? I obviously have the stretched heads cover, can anybody that has the boy post a pic of it?

When I was in North Carolina last week, I saw the CD of boy with the boy on the cover for 14 bucks, but i didn't buy it (I backed into an RV the weekend before and I have to pay for a new rear light cover thingy, saving money). I was kinda surprised; it wasn't even labeled as an import.
