Notes

Italian compiled collection of rare "A" sides and "B" sides, not previously available on an album.

Issued with monochrome lyrics insert and rear cover. No track times on release.
Manufactured for/by and distributed by RCA Limited, Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand.

Issued early 1983.

Lacquers cut locally.

The bracketed (p) on the labels indicate this is a New Zealand made disc, though the normal country (Aus or NZ) release codes, spine indicator ( Made in ....) are noticeably absent.

This is the first RCA Bowie release that is a genuine shared release between Australia and New Zealand - no copies were made in Australia.
