Back cover and spine: Manufactured in the E.U.
Labels: Made in the E.U.

Front Sticker Reads : "Back to Vinyl Original Album On 180-Gram Vinyl LP".

Like most Rhino reissues - Rhino pressed both an EU version and a US version [Talking Heads - Talking Heads: 77]. This is the EU pressing.

Judging from the matrix nos, it looks as though plating was done at RTI and EU version pressed by Optimal.

I too can confirm that this sounds really clear. I am not too familiar with the album but this pressing sounds incredibly crisp and clear, one of the nicest sounding records I own.
