There is also a mispressed 1985 repressing which incorrectly has the artwork from Prince And The Revolution - Pop Life.

An "E A S T" embossed around the center hole indicates it was sourced from metal parts that were originally made for use at Allied Record Company.

Absolute classic 12" from one of the most influential bands of all time, this single was very important in the formation of Techno an other electronic genres.

Originally intended to be on the upcoming "Techno Pop" album, the album was marred with issues, not the least of which included Hütter getting into a biking accident and going into a brief coma. Years later, "Electric Café" would show up with Tour no where to be seen, Leaving it to be a non-album single for the time being.

In 1999, a remastered 12" and CD single came out including the original Long French version and some remixes. In 2003, for the TDF's 100th anniversary, they made an album all about the TDF, with a new remade version appearing as the last track and being released as a single. I like the original lo-fi-ish version more.

These are remixes and were actually released in mid-1984; the printed copyright date pertains to the original master recordings and lyrics.

back in the early 80's this song was featured in the movie "Breakin'". When it was released in Mexico as a 12" vynil, the cover said in spanish "the broom dance" from the mivie "breakin'". It was called like that because in the movie one of the main caracters who was a dancer, grabed a broom to clean the floor and started dancing with it to Kraftwerk's Tour de France.
