I’m not sure if there are two versions of this, but there is certainly a Secret Affair – Glory Boys 40th-anniversary reissue.
I say I’m not sure as I have seen a version of this on transparent vinyl, although the Amazon listing doesn’t specifically mention it. That might be because there is a standard and clear vinyl edition or it might mean they have just forgotten to list that detail. I honestly don’t know. It’s your call.
What I do know is that any transparent version of the reissue is limited to 750 copies, with each one hand-numbered. So if you want that, get in quickly. Regardless of the colour of the vinyl, the edition is 180-gram audiophile vinyl complete with an insert.
Outside of that, this is the same album, a classic of its time and of the mod revival era and as such, has the same track listing as the original vinyl edition. There doesn’t seem to be any special edition CD either listed for now or later.
Talking of the date, you can pre-order now ahead of the release of 20th December 2019. So theoretically, just in time for Christmas. Tracks below if you need them. The price is cheaper at Amazon at £20.23 (although I don’t know if that’s the transparent vinyl or not) and £23.99 at Sound of Vinyl.
