"Computer Love" on this release sounds like an alternate mix compared to the US album mix. Listening to this and comparing it to the US 80s cd on Elektra, and the West German target cd of the US album, the vocals and synth lead are centered on the 12" compared to the cd versions, and there is more emphasis on the kick drum and bass line on the 12" version. I think it's a much better mix than the US album mix.

When I put my $50 down on the table of this trendy little Manhattan Used Vinyl Spot, I only did so because the record as shown in the photo, looked as if it just left the pressing plant. This was right after 9-11 happened and like most Kraftwerk fans, I felt like I was special knowing I now owned an original 12" promotional copy of their 1981 hit. "Numbers" is what it is. A timeless blend of perfect electronics. The prototype "Planet Rock" and inspiration for everything yet to come. And now it is 25 years later and I feel a chill going up my arm from thinking about what I am writing as I write this. Perfection actually never sounded so good.
