I don't read a thing here about the different mix on the Blank label compared to the Rough Trade issue.I own both of them,I read about this difference some time.The Blank mix seems to have less stereo left right effects.Whatever either way,one of my favourite records ever !

What is the best/definitive vinyl pressing of this record? Are any of the reissues ranging from 1980 and onwards better?
