    I'm puzzled by my copy. Identical to the limited edition listed here, with the same TCV2888 catalogue number but no number on the grey panel. It was bought soon after release, from a Virgin Megastore, so I can't believe it's a dodgy knock-off. I guess there must have been a reprint of the original cassette not listed on Discogs as well as the mid-range re-issue.

    Track A3 from "The Future" 12inch is entitled "Titled U.N." This is in fact "Wipe The Board Clean" from the brilliant B.E.F. cassette "Music For Stowaways" which was released on vinyl for export only (mainly to the US) as "Music To Listen To" This however had a different track listing from the UK cassette release, the export vinyl had most of the cassette trax and some, but not all ("Wipe The Board Clean" being one of them, although it did include "A Baby Called Billy" which is a must-have for any Techno/Electro/Eeelectronic Fiend!) The UK cassette release had most of the export vinyl trax and some, but not all. go figure.......They are both worth tracking down.....amazing, way ahead of it's time Techno/Electro/Ambient soundscapes. Sheffield IS and always has been the original Techno City, they just didn't know it.......City of Steel, City of Industry, City of Innovation....pioneers of electronic music from the 70's onwards......So, so, so underated.....dig deeper, search out the roots of techno, it's extemely enlightening...
