Notes:
Although the original 10-minute version appeared on both the Into Battle release in 1983 and the Who's Afraid album in 1984, "Moments In Love" wasn't released globally as a commercial single until 1985, when the song was featured on the "Pumping Iron II: The Women" soundtrack. Reissues followed in 1986 and 1987, in some markets. Copyright dates indicate the edits & remixes were prepared in 1984.

Singles generally featured shortened edits of the album version. The 12-inch remixes were "Moments In Love (Beaten)" and the slower "Love Beat". On the Daft compilation, the former was retitled "Love", and an edit of the latter was called "(Three Fingers Of) Love". 12-inch and CD singles also included an edit of "Beat Box (Diversion One)", listed on the releases either as "Beatbox Diversion 10" or just "Beat Box". In the US, "Moments In Love" was later paired with "Close (To The Edit)" as a double-A-sided reissue, accounted for separately in Discogs.

The 1999/2000 remixes were triggered by Rob Searle's bootleg mix "Moments In Time" and would eventually end in a cancelled release under the 'Vision' moniker. These can be found here: Moments In Love (Rob Searle's Anthem Mix)

Agreed with DogWater, why this wasn't released in its full glory on AWHYDWMB,G can't be anything but a curator's missed opportunity. The transition here between the last M in L segments is unparalleled. A minor and perhaps only a thing for us w the cassette to notice/care about, but the cassette version remains the ultimate rendition of what is Moments In Love.

Why release a 12" of MOL but only put the 7" version on it?
Should have put the original long version and perhaps a nice remix for this useless rerelease.
Looks like a blatant cash grab.

[Probably previously-undisclosed or undiscovered or even unknown?]
When held up to the light the vinyl is revealed to be translucent rust-brown color. Standard for this USA edition or minor variant rarity?

Re: JOY DIVISION "Closer" Ruby-Red translucent vinyl LP (*SRP=$180USD in 2019); and DEATH "Scream Bloody Gore" Charcoal grey/black translucent vinyl LP (*SRP=$200USD in 2019)
[examples of previously-undisclosed translucent color variants contributing to the monetary appreciation and financial speculation of vintage record albums]

From the edit history:

Since the artist is credited as "heART OF NOISE" on the A side, and "stART OF NOISE" on the B side, I would use as ANV the common denominator "Art Of Noise" [...but] "as on release" won the discussion. — bertielego

Did Paul Morley really intend for his puns and playful typography to be read as the actual artist name?— mjb

For submission purposes I don't think what Morley would prefer matters very much, but I suspect he might enjoy the wordplay being transcribed as is.— massenmedium
