I'm not 100% sure and I'd have to check it but in the next cd represses this was corrected and the lyrics are complete. I guess this cd has the big "management..." text in the back, right down the tracklist.
There is another repress with that text but smaller and another more without the text (this last was done after they sacked Simon). If I'm not wrong only the first one has these mistakes. These goes for the European editions.
I'm not sure about the canadian edition. I have one with the big Management text and the lyrics are complete.
The USA edition I have has the smaller Management text and the lyrics are mistaken.

By the way, to make this more difficult, the European editions were pressed in Holland, Italy, UK and Europe. I don't know hom many combinations were done hahaha
I might take a day off to arrange all my collection and dig a bit into these things.

European cassettes also got some represses. So far I have seen two for Europe (with and without Management text), but I can not tell you about the lyrics because I have them sealed.

My Australian CD has the same lyric, but no 'management...' in the back.

Same goes for the vinyl release. Both my copies of the vinyl have the same. I suspect it was a lack of space on the inlay.

Interesting. Thanks for the info.
The vinyls will surely have the mistaken lyrics since there was only one press.

Correct me if I'm wrong but your French cd, the one from the boxset, is made in Italy, isn't it? I guess it is the exact same than the italian one. If I'm right this is because all the "made in Italy" copies were done after they sacked Simon so there's no management text in the back.
Same goes for the minidisc, which was pressed on March 98.

Strange! They have something with wrong lyrics, just like Victoria's part in Holler...

The lyrics in early pressings of the album reflect the original mixes of the tracks, and not the album versions.

Surely not. SUYL is short enough as it is. There's no way they would have written/produced a track without a first and second verse...

How strange though that they left out the complete verses on the inlay! Strange indeed!.. -_-

just checked... the Spiceworld cd has the "MADE IN THE EU" writing on the back, while the disc says "made in Holland". Spice from the same boxset has both disc and back cover with the "MADE IN HOLLAND" writing. I also have the original French pressing, with the sticker saying "le nouvel album....", but it's sealed, so i can't check....

I need to check my boxsets then. I have two, one with a white boxset and one with blue slipcase.

I just checked the boxsets and the white one is:

Spice - Holland
SpiceWorld - EU, without management

For some reason I believed that the Italian press was the last one but it is the EU one the last one made.
