ZX Spectrum Code is just the full album but it has an iTunes visualizer in 1983. BTW why did they record this album with reel-to-reels? CDs were invented a year before this album was released.

Mine was bought in New Zealand back in '83 and it had the bonus 12". I could be wrong but I don't recall it having the generic Festival card inner sleeve for the bonus 12" though. Also I repurchased it with the bonus 12" secondhand a couple of years ago and that copy didn't have the Festival card inner either. This New Zealand double vinyl also has a large purple "bonus 12 inch" hype sticker on the front cover, not pictured here. I have it but I don't know how to add images.

Pete Shelley's work with Martin Rushent is SO underrated both in period and looking back. Not just a post punk career but massively predictive of what was to come. The mega-stardom of the Human League and Martin Rushent's production seemed to leave Shelley as the forgotten man BUT in the cool clubs these tracks were massive in 12" form. Look out for the extended versions on later re-press CD's for the full Rushent/Shelley Dub experience: Telephone Operator-Many A Time-Dub is a club banger and mixed into its regular album version is a period DJ blend. Also the segue into If You Ask Me/No One Like You (Dub) is a great blend. Bottom line is Rushents Dubs became legendary with the Human League 12's but I much prefer his work here. Wish someone would collect all of Pete Shelleys 12's and Dubs and issue them in a collection. Surely both Rushent & Shelley deserve the accolade.

Love this album. Heard this by way of Buzzcocks, of course. "What Was Heaven" is my favorite.
