Like all US LP editions of the album, this version omits three of the UK release's ten tracks: "Keats' Song", "Pusher Man" and "It's Hard Enough Knowing". Appearing instead are three tracks not present on that version: "Love in Vain", "Witness the Change" and "In Love With Somebody Else". Track order is also somewhat different.

Blue and tan Arista center labels include a "WARNING" against "Unauthorized reproduction" not present on other US LP editions.

A 1982 phonographic copyright (℗) is given for track A3 on both the sleeve and center labels. 1981 for all other copyright dates.

Rear sleeve text:
Produced and engineered by Martin Rushent and Pete Shelley at Genetic Sound, England 1981

Hype sticker on some copies:
A specially-priced album.
Including the worldwide smash hit "Homosapien"
plus three brand new U.S. - only tracks,
and other great cuts.
