There are rumours about a story behind this. It was released in Germany as 12" in the year 1982 (INT 126.804). At the end of the 80s someone at Intercord was going through the back-catalogue in order to delete low-selling items. Well, warm Leatherette is a classic, but not at all a chart hit. So it went out of the catalog! - Later on they found out what happened and came to the conclusion, that it was a bad idea to delete Mute founder Daniel Millers own and very first release. So Warm Leatherette/T.V.O.D. was rereleases with new not only on vinyl but also on CD. A truely oggers-fairytale!
