USA vs. Japan releases

Hey everybody,

After taking a more in-depth look at some of Shonen Knife's discography I've realized I didn't know there were so many CD's released in both Japan and US versions. I haven't been able to find a really good place online that really states how to tell the differences between the two versions either. There is the obvious, that each release has different cover art [one "Genki Shock!" has a yellow background and one "Genki Shock!" has a pink background for example), but what else is different with the albums that have and foreign and domestic release??

I have a copy of "Heavy Songs", for example, that someone literally made me a copy of and I always thought it was the English version.... now I'm not so sure. Any helpful hints on how to tell the different albums apart? Both cover art and mabye certain songs sung in Japanese and certain songs sung in Englsih???
