Anmerkungen

Published by B Music 1983.
A Factory Record.

First edition. Later UK editions can have a die-cut cover with thin matte black inner sleeve, or a die-cut cover with thick glossy black inner sleeve, or a plain black with just the colour coding and different inner sleeves.

The coloured strip is not random - it spells out the Catalog#, band name and both song titles.
The back cover of "Power, Corruption and Lies" has the same colour coding, done with the alphabet (a decoder ring).

First pressing: 60,000 copies (30,000 pre-sales).
Initial A1/B1 pressings are characterised by a heavy and opaque vinyl. Runout space is 0.35 inches. The first edition thick silver inner sleeve has straight top corners.

"Outvoted" in the runout refers to an error made by the Strawberry engineer, who brought up the fader too late and missed the first drumbeat. New Order took a vote as to whether the mistake should stay, and the yes vote prevailed.

This spectacular song should have been released on blue vinyl just for it’s namesake alone.

Is there a record of how many copies were pressed with the labels on the wrong sides? (Blue Monday labelled side plays The Beach and vise-versa). Die cut sleeve, black inner sleeve.

The biggest EVER selling 12" (and single) by New Order alone! From my understanding all proceeds from this song went to fund The Hacienda rather than the New Order's respected savings.

That aside, this is one of my all time faves! A true classic that will NEVER grow old! <3 <3

I have 2 of the imported UK versions of the 12 inch vinyl discs I purchased in 1983 in Southern California. Both have the same issue the mis-labeling - the side labeled "Blue Monday" is etched "R-CUT" & "FAC 73 B2" the actual song is on this side of the disc is "The Beach" and the side labeled "The Beach" is stamped "STRAWBERRY" and etched "OUT VOTED", "FAC-73-A1", "MT.3". The sleeves are both Die Cut Sleeves - 3 edge cuts (2 circular + 1 square) and 3 body (center circle with smaller circle offset with rounded rectangle toward edge). Any one else have this version?
