The "SLM △" in the A Side runout etchings indicates that the lacquer disc was processed at, and the metal parts used to manufacture the record were made at Sheffield Lab Matrix.
The "(SRC) logo" and "-SR#" in the B Side runout etchings indicates that the lacquer disc was processed at, and the metal parts used to manufacture the record were made at Specialty Records Corporation (or possibly subcontracted to the Sheffield Lab Matrix, Olyphant, PA facility?).

Pressed By Allied Record Company (based on company specific matrix numbers in the matrix/runout area "a B-19325" & "B-19326").

" It is unlikely that releases in other countries would have preceded these editions."
Glad to see it's not just my memory that's 'going' !
Is it not possible that earlier dates on this [& other releases] are correct ?
I remember an unknown act called Madonna & in the UK it was like shops suddenly had stock of her records months after they first appeared, and sort did 'ok' chartwise.
There's video's of various people saying that her Like A Virgin album was 'finished' but held back for release as they were 'gonna try again with the 1st album'...?
