Notes

Recorded over three days in August 1979 on 8-track equipment at Cargo, Rochdale.
Mixed at Strawberry, Stockport.
Originally published by Movement of 24th. January Music.
A Factory Records Product, originally released in January 1980.

Thanks also to Gammer for his melody and Rowbotham, Reid and Debord for the marketing concept.

It was Tony Wilson who had the idea for the cover, following Situationist Guy Debord's book "Mémoires" also wrapped in sandpaper to destroy the adjacent books. Reid refers to Jamie Reid, who apparently wanted to title the first Sex Pistols album "Where's the Durutti Column?". Rowbotham refers to Dave Rowbotham, the former DC founder and guitarist.

This new edition comes in a die-cut sleeve (based on Peter Saville's 1979 "bar graph" Factory Records logo), with a sheet of 11"x11" glasspaper attached to the inner bag.

Tracks B6 and B7 were not part of the original LP release but are taken from 1980 Factory Benelux single The Durutti Column - Lips That Would Kiss.

No more sound reviews? I'm really curious about those 2 recent presses VS the 2nd version LP which is still affordable...

It came with a very VERY static record, cover kinda worn up and a track that's different from the original: beginning.
still, it's very cool and it's a good sounding copy, for the original get a copy from late 80s without sandpaper.

This version does *not* have the excellent, guitar-only track that begins side two of the pressing with the black textured sleeve and paintings, and is listed as "Beginning." That track runs 1:37. Instead, it has a longer track titled "Beginning," which is way, way less interesting, and has drums. This is unfortunate, since the shorter "Beginning" is a haunting, beautiful, albeit brief track, and it's what I'm used to hearing at the start of side two, while this longer "Beginning" is just kind of ho-hum. So, that's something to keep in mind for anyone who is interested in getting this particular reissue.

The glasspaper wasn't a good idea. It ruins the vinyl.
