US version comes in gatefold cover with lyrics and band photos on the inside.
Canadian version comes in non-gatefold cover.

Despite being both credited and pictured on this album, Chuck Schuldiner said that he handled the bass parts not Terry Butler, who only joined the band right after the recording sessions of Leprosy were completed. So, this means that Spiritual Healing was Butler's only proper recording with Death.
