Notes:
Joy Division's debut album. Released on 15 June 1979.

Initial run of 10.000 copies was housed in a textured cover, pressed by the WEA pressing plant in West Drayton and sold until October 1979. Another 10.000 copies were sold until Mid 1980. Reissued / repressed again in July 1980. The Townhouse edition is from late 1980. Later confirmed represses from 1981 and 1983.

Peaked at # 71 in the UK Album Charts in August 1980.

Recorded in April 1979 at Strawberry Studios, Stockport. Also recorded during these sessions were the tracks "Auto-Suggestion" and "From Safety To Where...?" (both released on Earcom 2) as well as "Exercise One", "The Only Mistake", "Walked In Line" and "The Kill" (all later released on Still).

Outside is side A and Inside is side B. This however got mixed up by the pressing plant, assigning Outside = B and Inside = A in the runouts.

The centre sleeve depicts "100 consecutive pulses from the pulsar CP 1919", taken from an image that Bernard Sumner found.

Buyers beware that some sellers are mislisting the US version as a UK version. Most accidentally but I suspect not all. Some have changed their listing when I inquired about which version they really had for sale but not all. The US version does not come with the digital download code. You may want to confirm with the seller first.

I bought this record in 86 or 87 and can't believe it went without purchase for years since its pressing in 80. I think I've played it 5-6 times now since then. It plays dead quiet, but does have scuffs. What a fabulous record that I appreciate much more now that I'm in my 50's.

My copy of this release is on flat, silent vinyl. This is a great record for listening nights. The soundstage is very big with very good separation. The stereo effects are interesting. Strong low end, punchy mid-bass with detailed mids and highs. A very linear mix. This is a great album and this pressing does everything well. Prepare to be hit in the face by a thick wall of sound. Highly recommended. (Rega Planar 3, Exact 2 cart, PSE Studio SL, Linn LK85, Linn interconnects, Linn Katans - Linn Sizmik 12.45" for 2.1)

I definitely have this version, the etchings in the runout matches, and it has a textured sleeve. So there seems to be variations in the sleeve for the same pressing.

I find the brightness of the pressing a bit distracting for some
Reason! Still amazing but... you know, something about that original sound

A great pressing on dead silent wax.

The sleeve was textured as described, and the internal contents included the reproduced album liner on cardstock as well as an additional poly lined archival sleeve that the album actually sits in.

Compared to the digital version of the 2007 remaster this pressing has a much wider and vacuous soundstage. Though the album is a cavernous wall of resonating reverb the music is brilliantly mixed in a way where each instrument is given it's own frequency to breath. This allows for you to easily discern each instrument from one another within the caucaphony, and to easily tell where their physical placement is among the soundstage. There are even low levels of echoes that I've never noticed on some of the tracks where you can hear the decay of the word or note far too long after the sound is heard.

In a head to head shoot out many people still insist on the quality of an original pressing compared to these remasters but this vinyl repressing is still head an shoulders above any digital or radio version of the songs I've heard before. That being said, the CD versions of these master tapes (2007 & 2015) are said to be still heavily compressed and not up to snuff with the CDs released in 89' and 91'.

Hello everybody,
i have a very strange version of this Vinyle. Cover is exactly the same, B Side also. But A Side is in fact what seems the one of Mike Olfield Tubular Bells French 1984 reedition (release Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells), wich was also realesed by Virgin. Does anyone heard about such a mistake ? or is it an unofficial release wich goes wrong ?
the attrition marks of vinyle (and cover) are compliant with a 1980's one.
thanks for helping
Zembria

Hey, has anyone come across matrix numbers S-13 on side A and S-11 on side B?
Inner sleeve has rounded corners.
Please reply if this means something to you, since I can't figure out which variation I've got. Many thanks
