Track B13 is unlisted.
This version has a different tracklist to the subsequent commercial release through Rough Trade (Various - NME / Rough Trade C81), which substitutes A9 ('Raquel' by The Specials) and B7 ('Don't Get In My Way' by Linx) with alternatives. It also does not include the text: "This cassette began as a mail order only offer through the NME. Two tracks (marked **) are new, due to contractual obligations. Many thanks to the NME for their efforts."
The following texts appear on the inlays of both versions.
"This is the first release (catalogue number Copy 001) of ROUGH TAPES, the new Rough Trade tape cassette catalogue. Future Rough Tapes releases will include "Voice Of America" by Cabaret Voltaire, "Colossal Youth" by Young Marble Giants, "The Art Of Walking" by Pere Ubu, new studio LPs by The Raincoats, Scritti Politti, Red Crayola and Wire "cassette only" collection of unreleased material.
