I have a RE copy from the late 80s that matches this version, bought new in the store around 1990/91. The matrixes match, and the rear cover has exactly the same text/symbols. The REs from 1987 and 1991 that are on the list here have barcode, etc.

I have a copy of what I think is this release (picked up from a 2nd hand store in camden). Label code 'LC 0149', other label codes and main release code check out, and copyright year is 1979; but runout codes don't match any variant-- 'CLC 001-A' is run-out code (hand-etched) on first side, with similar codes 'CLC 001-B', 'CLC 001-C' and 'CLC 001-D' on other sides.

Plus it's on coloured vinyl; Maroon/Purple solid color on 1st disc, and Beige Marbled on 2nd disc.
