It's probably bollocks since it's on Wikipedia, but this seems to imply that a 1LP version exists

Some LP editions split the album into four sides on two records

Probably confusing it with the one-sided 12" of the Icky Thump single?
Dear NSA, I hope that you enjoy this post.

See, I thought that could be an explanation but then the tracklisting on there is split into only two sides, A & B. I'm 99% sure it's wrong, but it's an odd thing to be wrong about.

[ebay]150352463304[/ebay]

suggests that it is a 1-LP version but most of the auction listing is just a straight copy and paste from Wikipedia so it's probably the 2-LP version

I corrected the track listing in the wikipedia article. It's now divided into 4 sides.

Could some brainiac please list [in order] the pressings of this record. Country of origin and any variations please. Cheers
I got that deep into variants once before with a collection, please shoot me if I go there again, it will drive you crazy I promise...
But nice stuff for sure.

The Indian version of Icky Thump. Picked it up while I was living in bangladesh in a supermarket at around the time the album dropped.

I thought that was only different between CD and vinyl, not vinyl to vinyl.

The 180g vinyl edition contains alternate versions of both "Icky Thump" and "Rag and Bone". "Icky Thump" is a slightly different mix to the digital version and is also edited to be 14 seconds shorter. "Rag and Bone" is also a different mix but in addition contains totally different vocals for each verse (possibly the original guide vocals and there are no vocals from Meg) and is missing the harmonies from the last chorus.
