The version of "Remember I Was Vapour" I have on vinyl (ATCO) and CD-rerelease are different. On the vinyl there's an added synthesizer solo and some panning madness going on after 3 min 15 sec. Was this on the original UK vinyl?

This is one of the most beautiful and original electronic albums ever made! Every track is excellent and for me this stands out as Gary Numan's true masterpiece, the lyrics are wonderful and the music just, well, it's just brilliant, I have never tired of hearing this album since buying the original vinyl release back in 1980.
