Notes

The LP has a number of Japanese release variants:

1st Version: Yellow (transparent) vinyl with red labels used on all Alfa records (except special variants) from 1978 to early 1980, features a red obi strip which mentions the yellow vinyl.

[All subsequent versions are in standard black vinyl.]

2nd Version: Red obi strip from the first version but without the mention of the yellow vinyl, red labels on vinyl. Used until around November 1979.

3rd Version: Yellow obi strip, red labels on vinyl. Made sometime between November 1979 - February 1980.

4th Version: Different red obi strip, red labels on vinyl. Made for the release of the group's live album Public Pressure, which is promoted on the back of the obi strip.

5th Version: Red obi strip #2, now with gradient labels used on all Alfa records (except special variants) from early 1980 to early 1981. There was a later variant of the obi strip that added the catalog numbers for the cassette versions of the promoted albums in addition to Solid State Survivor's, with an image of its cassette cover design. In addition, some copies of this pressing have a hype sticker stating that the album won an industry award.

6th Version: Red obi strip #2 with final mention of Victor Musical Industries as the distributor, now with white/beige labels used on all Alfa records (except special variants) since early 1981.

7th Version: Red obi strip #2 with mention of Warner-Pioneer Corporation as the new distributor after the rights transferred in 1983. The white/beige labels are carried over from the previous version, but the vinyl is re-cut at a slightly different rate.

Versions 1-6 were manufactured by Victor, and the black vinyl versions used a unique formula in which the record becomes semi-transparent when you hold it up to a source of light. Warner pressings are fully opaque.
