its definately a UK printed sleeve.. the other two possibilities are that it was a pre-production version but they are usually not glued at all and have no visible seams, just 'proofs' for ok'ing with the record company before printing on mass. Otherwise it could just be a 'fluke', printed the wrong way round so didnt fit with the inner gatefold so was put together as a single- either slipped through quality control or someone took it home.

It is most likely a German "Nice Price" reissue. It was rather usual that in the 80s
albums from the 70s where reissued and sold for (almost) half the price here.
Most gatefolds where changed to single covers back then.

I dont think so.. the disc is an original german press for the UK market and UA tended to release their budget range on either the 'Sunset' imprint or the low price 'rock series' (usually starting with the UP prefix in the serial number) and on a 'black and white' (as opposed to cream and brown) UA label. Looking at the photos again it looks like the seams might have been cellotaped at some time so i still think its either a 'proof' sleeve, a factory mistake or home-modified sleeve..
