Notes:
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 (so that until July 1981, 77.523 copies were pressed in total). Later confirmed represses from 1981 and 1984. The third and final mastered edition on Factory was done at Townhouse somewhere early 80s.

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 "Autosuggestion" 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 in 'The Cambridge Encyclopaedia of Astronomy' (page 111, 1977 edition), which was a reproduction of a visualization created by Harold D. Craft, Jr., for his dissertation “Radio Observations of the Pulse Profiles and Dispersion Measures of Twelve Pulsars,” (September 1970).

I've recently managed to get, what I believe is a copy of this classic, but on Side 1 the Runout is stamped 0060 362 S 2 0703 949 S 2 320 1 F and Side 2 is Stamped 0060 362 S 2 0703 949 S 2 320 1 B. But the "F" version isn't listed above? As said before sound quality is superb. FYI everything described above about identifying the album I have is correct including the misprint on the spine.

Sounds great but skips like hell. I use Technics record player and installed brand new AT cartridge with elliptical stylus and this is the only record that skips out of 20+ records I played with this cartridge.

What can you say about this classic? I would love to hear a UK first issue but have never crossed paths with one. However, the quality of these first US issues is outstanding. I bought my copy used in the early 90s. I also have the 2019 issue which is nice but doesn't deliver to the same degree as this first issue.

Hearing the mix of the original vinyl pressing is fascinating after years of having only heard this on other forms of media. It's very cool, but definitely different.

Hard to find a copy without some ringwear, textured sleeves seem to be smoother on some too and they all seem to be different, I suppose that's what makes collecting interesting.

This is one of the best sounding pressings I've ever heard.

I've listened to Unknown Pleasures in various versions and on many, many systems through the years. When putting this version on I heard elements I've not yet heard. This is apparently not a remaster, so I put that completely down to the pressing.
Absolutely insane record.

Most likely released 1987-1988 in my opinion like the other Cinram JD discs.
