There are a few more versions than those stated. 1. with either the deep yellow deep blue paper label with the Lyntone etching and a card reverse sleeve (i.e. the cutaway is on the front). The sleeve has lighter 'Echo..' on front and similarly lighter scribble as above and darker red graphics. With the The Revenge Of Voodoo Billy. Or 2) there is also a version with light yellow and light turquoise paper label also in the card reverse sleeve. The 3rd Zoo single (ZOO3)Teardrop Explodes has the same LYN markings but ZOO5 does not. The lighter markings but as a paper sleeve continue with 'Damont' markings. Sleeves after this have a much darker scribble and thicker 'Echo..' some with Damont and then no particular markings except 'MT 1'. Be interesting to know why (& when) the graphics became a) much darker black and b) lighter red. Conclude that possibly the 'MT' issues were pressed up once Echo got moving in the charts
