Side 1 matrices on my copy: U 25 A-7U-1; Side 2: U 25 B-6U-1. Not listed above, but I'm assuming it's consistent.

Like the 2 previous LPs (October & War) the cover is slightly rough textured. The variations in the matrices are strange but consistent and it is hard to say which would be a '1st' pressing as the numbers before the 'U' vary only in being combinations of '4', '6', '7' & '8' of the copies we have that have the original textured cover. Of course by this time U2 were very popular so quite a few master stampers would have been made to deal with the large press run required.

The levels of my copy are quite different from side to side. Side B is much more quiet than Side A. Very strange for such a prestigious band.
