(LP, CD, cartridge, United States, Canada)

In the USA and Canada, the version of the first Christie LP came in an orange-brown cover, and was actually titled Yellow River. The title listing was the same as that of the "common" album, but omitted the last two tracks.
   In the 90s, this version was released on CD by Golden Collectibles. The same track listing as on the LP was included, but extra tracks were added: Here I Am, Man of Many Faces and Country Sam. However, there was still no Until The Dawn. The CD version does come with original liner notes compiled by a US pop historian.
   There was also an 8-track cartridge version of the album released. The songs were rearranged to fit best into this format, and so the listing is completely different to that of the record.

(LP, Mexico)

In Mexico, the album featured a magnificent colour cover of the classic Christie pose featuring Jeff in military outfit. The album was called Rio Amarillo Yellow River, and features all the songs on the common album except Johnny One Time and Until The Dawn.



AFRTSThe American Forces Network (AFN) is the brand name used by the United States Armed Forces American Forces Radio and Television Service (AFRTS) for its entertainment and command internal information networks worldwide.
   The AFN worldwide radio and television broadcast network serves American service men and women, Department of Defense and other US government civilians and their families stationed at bases overseas, as well as US Navy ships at sea.
   Christie's Yellow River album was released on an AFRTS disc for AFRTS radio play, but strangely only on one side of a disc, and with the order of songs in different order to the normal Christie album. Even stranger, Yellow River is not one of the songs on the record.
