Quite often found without sleeve. . . Is there a reason for this?

My copy of the Turn To Red 10" begins with Nervous System first on the A side (not Turn To Red). Speaking of 'sides' the label says Side B on each side despite the correct track listings. Does everyone else's copy have all this or have I got a rarity??? (even if I have I'm not selling, I like playing it and it's mine!! Ha ha).

I'll leave it be for now, but ascribing the genre 'reggae' to this band is almost as risible as calling them 'electronic'. Just my two cents.

This is the original version of the band's debut single, lacking the track 'almost red' that would appear a little later on the 12" pressing. The 10" release is collectable, not only for it's music but also for the 4 scarce 'art cards' included with the disc in its clear plastic sleeve.
