I have variation 2 but the vinyl is black (not opaque).

It's worth noting this pressing has extra drum beats at the beginning of She's Lost Control.

My vinyl seems to be green when held up to a bright light, no red. Everything else matches however.

Great version of "She's Lost Control" ~ different than the one on Unknown Pleasures.

My Italy pressing is Variation 1, but also has a "MADE IN ENGLAND" sticker.

A light variation in my own copy:
Side A: FACUS 2A ̶B̶ 2 | A PORKY PRIME CUT. | HERE ARE THE YOUNG MEN.
Side B: FACUS 2B̶ A̶ 2 | A PORKY PRIME CUT. | BUT WHERE HAVE THEY BEEN.

And would like someone to confirm labels: dark green on white. Pics shows black on white.

When I first bought this soon after its release I played it 18 times in a row. It still moves me as much now as then.

The A-side is what I would say is the most beautiful song of the 20th century.
Its tribal drumming, its heartfelt and heartbreaking lyrics and vocals, its lushly minimalistic instrumentation...
Everything flows perfectly into
Listening to this song is the only thing ever to give me an experience resembling Synesthesia; the drums streaks of gray and black running rhythmically through my vision, the synth vertical pillars of pink, slowly fading back into gray.
The B-Side is also one of Ian Curtis's best written songs. Some of the best lyrics out of the band and one of their most haunting songs.

Although not exactly rare or hard to find, this 12'' is one of the most cherished in my collection simply for the fact that when I first purchased this record ( i still own the copy i purchased in 1987 )it was the beginning for me as an avid collector and DJ.

For those of us whom are fortunate enough to be able to play records such as this out in clubs and bars effectivley, it's great to be able to have on 12'' as opposed to any other format, for reasons relative to both sound and mixing.
