Purchased my copy in 1980. There is included a free flex plastic 7" with on one side "Incubation" and other side "Komakino" Does anyone know about this?

Just added my mispress of this. I remember how pissed I was when I bought it. I had to go down and buy another copy because the store wouldn’t return it - lol.

I love this record, playing it countless times. For me, Atmosphere is more rarified than Love Will Tear Us Apart. Atmosphere is closest to the sense of loss and LWTUA is about loss from a safer distance. The snowscene cover art is also pitched perfectly - a cold, still beauty.

My vinyl seems to be green when held up to a bright light, no red. Everything else matches however.

Great version of "She's Lost Control" ~ different than the one on Unknown Pleasures.

A light variation in my own copy:
Side A: FACUS 2A ̶B̶ 2 | A PORKY PRIME CUT. | HERE ARE THE YOUNG MEN.
Side B: FACUS 2B̶ A̶ 2 | A PORKY PRIME CUT. | BUT WHERE HAVE THEY BEEN.

And would like someone to confirm labels: dark green on white. Pics shows black on white.

Although not exactly rare or hard to find, this 12'' is one of the most cherished in my collection simply for the fact that when I first purchased this record ( i still own the copy i purchased in 1987 )it was the beginning for me as an avid collector and DJ.

For those of us whom are fortunate enough to be able to play records such as this out in clubs and bars effectivley, it's great to be able to have on 12'' as opposed to any other format, for reasons relative to both sound and mixing.
