Notes:
The UK sleeve designed by Peter Saville originally had a 12 x 12 grid, die-cut into a blue sleeve with an orange and black inner sleeve. Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
When he was told that the sleeve colour could be changed, after 10,000 copies had been produced with no extra costs incurred, three more versions of the sleeve were designed.
The second version of the sleeve had the same 12 x 12 grid die-cut, this time into a black sleeve that had a pink and black inner sleeve added. Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
The third version had a 10 x 10 grid die-cut into a grey sleeve, that also used the orange inner sleeve of the first version. Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
The fourth version had the same 10 x 10 grid, die-cut in to the blue sleeve used for the first version, but with a redesigned orange and black inner sleeve that had the text across the top of the sleeve. Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
The other versions that also ended up being released, came about due to different inner sleeves being added randomly. The title stickers being added by hand also led to some of the sleeves to be used in reverse, which causes the grid pattern to appear to be cut the opposite direction.
Each of the four designs had a print run of 10,000 copies each, and so the variations come from a mixture of the original four designs, from the total initial release of 40,000 copies printed, before the standard none die-cut general release sleeve was produced.

matrix numbers here listed as 'where' - should it be 'were' or did they get the spelling wrong in print?

WHY IS THIS IN MONO??? This orange vinyl edition AND the recent black vinyl edition have both been pressed in mono. My original vinyl copy and the remastered cd are both in stereo, so WHY?. My new copies of Organization and Architecture And Morality are fine and sound great. This is a clean copy by the way, no dust or residue anywhere.

It’s not inner groove distortion. My setup is fine. It’s specifically this pressing.

With regards to the Notes above I have just listened to my copy all the way through and there were no jumps whatsoever. It was surprisingly dusty for a brand new sealed copy but I cleaned it prior to playing.

Think in a lot of cases where people are reselling limited edition new releases/reissues it's a case of 75% record collector, 25% record dealer (ie. primary reason they're there is to buy titles for themselves but maybe they buy the occasional other title to resell to go towards paying for their own records).

Buyers should boycott sellers who have already - within one hour of public availability (10am - HMV opening time) on the *day of release* - put copies of this record and the other HMV exclusives up for sale at massively inflated prices (over 200% in the instance of this record). Absolutely disgusting; get a real job, scalpers.

HMV aren't guiltless either. The 'one copy per customer' rule needs to be extended to exclusives more generally. I was eighth in line this morning for a coloured vinyl copy of one of my favourite LPs, which I am now - maybe even heinously - playing and enjoying as I write this. The fact is: an hour ago, I saw pushing and shoving (and not a whole of social distancing) as the great unwashed plucked armfuls of exclusives from the racks, one by one. I'm not usually one to cast aspersions, but I think we all know where those records are currently (hint: you're already there).

Half formed sketches of songs.The most dreadful vocals akin to an out of tune Tom Verlaine crossed with Richard Jobson on a bad day.There is a little nostalgic thrill to be had on Red Frame and Electricity but the rest of the album is dire.Nice sleeve though!

Has anybody else noticed that the album is mono? And the vinyl noise is very loud. My original copy sounds much better than this.

Very nice pressing until "The Messerschmitt Twins" and "Pretending to See the Future". Audible distortion on the vocals coming from the right channel. Perhaps I got an unlucky copy.

A nice press but I did have to give it a thorough clean with a goat hair brush as the record jumped midway through side two and there was an object stuck in the groove which was tricky to move with just a wipe over.
