Pirate version of Closer.

First cat# on sleeve (spine and back cover), 2nd on labels, 3rd from runouts.

The outer sleeve and the labels look the same as the official 1980 Factory UK vinyl release.
This edition has a frontcover with the picture in black & purple instead of black & white!

Includes single sheet insert with printing on both sides, one side has the song lyrics.

Available on 3 marbled green vinyl editions : turquoise, pale and olive (this) green.

Probably from Germany.

The printing company on the insert (Clifford Press) was taken from the UK/Euro remastered LP edition and is of course fake too.
