The labels say "(P) 1981 Clay Records Ltd." and "45 RPM", but it runs on 33 1/3 and clearly is a reissue. I purchased it in a small record store in Berlin-Kreuzberg in late 1999 / early 2000 and it was in Mint condition, so I guess it was released in 1998 or '99.

Except for the runout etchings this version looks exactly like the 1st pressing.

Can it be that it's a bootleg? The labels are very unpixeled compared to the other pressings... who knows?
