Similar to release: Due to the presence of IFPI codes and when I bought my copy this must have been released between 1994 and 1998.

The disc additionally has 'Made in UK' on it and a BEL/BIEM logo. This as well as having 'Manufactured by Toshiba-EMI LTD. in Japan' above it, which I'm guessing isn't correct as the Matrix shows EMI Swindon.

On the back cover the barcode area is different, with an additional text barcode, plus the text 'Printed in U.K.' and Place of manufacture as stated on label Marketed and Distributed by EMI. There's also an EMI logo next to this.

Originally released in 1979, except track 12, 1980.

Engineered at Pathé Marconi Studio, Paris, June 1979.
Mixed at Air London Studios.
