Zooming in displays several song titles.


On an enlarged image of the above one, you can also read the full lyrics for one song:

Happy With You

I sat round all day
I used to get stoned
I liked to get wasted
But these days I don‘t
I got lots of good thing: to do, oh yeah

l walked around angry
i used to Feel bad
But nowadays my days
don ‘t have to be sad
‘cos: I'm happy, with you
I got lots of good thing: to do, oh yeah

Like, hear the high clear robin sing
Walk a bluebell carpet
Watch the children playing games
Catch a moon and drop it
Hear the gentle mantle roll
On a Frosty morning
See the migthy Ocean break
Like a sailor Warning

l used to drink so much
Forget To come ome
I lied to my doctir
But these days I don't
‘cos: I'm happy, with you
I got lots of good thing: to do, oh yeah

Throw a pooketful of coins in the Trevi tountain
See an ice cold running stream
Rushing down the mountain
Hear a new born baby lamb
Calling tor its mother
loving one another

I sat round all day
I used to get stoned
I liked to get wasted
But these days I don‘t
I got lots of good thing: to do, oh yeah


Then there's this image, with two LPs sticking out from the cover.
And this one, with one vinyl disc. HMV Japan described this version yesterday,
and the album sleeve is just double, not trifold.

Apart from the Barnes & Noble exclusive red colour 2LP edition depicted first in this blog post, there's also another colour variation announced but not described, so we don't know which colour it might be. Here's how it's presented:
But what's the colour?
Update: Paul McCartney has posted this image, which may or may not refer to the above edition:

In the description, this blue and orange vinyl edition is supposedly exclusive to Paul McCartney's online store (and only available in the USA, as well), whereas the nondescript colour edition above it is available from other stores as well.

 And then there is this Target exclusive, with two extra songs.

Target got themselves another exclusive.
+ 2 extra songs on this CD edition.
In the United Kingdom, the Target version with 2 extra songs is known as the HMV version:
From HMV comes a version with 2 bonus tracks and no, they don't ship it abroad.
Delivery to the UK only, which means you will have to look for it on ebay, where there are plenty of sellers who profit on this quite unnecessary policy by the record company store.

There's a rumour that elsewhere in Europe, this CD with 2 bonus tracks will be available from indie record stores, and not from web shops.

Yow! Those are some pretty duff lyrics there, Sir P! Hopefully not representative of the entire LP!

Why can’t we have one album release with all the tracks. Why not. All this special bonus tracks on Target garbage does my head in. Is there a Target in the UK. And to think The Beatles used to hate capitol playing around with the tracklisting of their UK album releases.
