Notes

The track "In 'D'" is actually a different mix of "Sketch For Winter"

First released in January 1980 in a sandpaper sleeve, inspired by situationist Guy Debord's book "Mémoires", which was housed in a sandpaper cover to destroy other books on the shelf. The sandpaper sleeve was assembled by members of Joy Division, A Certain Ratio, and others. While Ian Curtis did the glueing, the other members of Joy Division watched a porn movie in the same room.

Initial pressings are on dark red translucent vinyl. Some sandpaper copies included a flexi disc with two instrumental tracks by Martin Hannett. There were four editions of the sandpaper sleeve (total edition of 3600): FACT 14 sprayed (in black or white) and with flexi; no spray but with flexi; no spray and no flexi; or The Return Of The Durutti Column sprayed in black but without flexi.

Reissued in July 1980 in a black sleeve, with a painting by Raoul Dufy. The black sleeve editions come in textured and untextured versions.

There are originally two audio versions of this album.
- The first and third pressings each have five tracks on the B side (matrices A1/B1 and A3/B3).
- The second pressing (matrix A2/B2) has six tracks on the B side, but only five are listed: track B1 is new and uncredited but labeled as "Beginning", track B5 is "Beginning" but unlisted, and track B6 is "In 'D'". This configuration is also found on Italian and Japanese vinyl pressings, as well as on the CD that was part of FACD 224.

The first Japanese edition (JAL-1) has 10 tracks with new / uncredited track as B1, but the inner sleeve lists track B5 as "In 'D' (A)" and "(B)". Same audio content as FACD 14 and FACT 14 A2/B2.

Both Japanese CD editions and FACD 14 have "Beginning" and "In 'D'" combined into one track, labeled as "In 'D'", with overall track length of 4:10 (incl. 6 second silence). Same audio content as JAL 1 and FACT 14 A2/B2.

14 000 copies were pressed until 17 July 1981.
