Notes

This edition says "West End Girls (Dance Mix)" on the A-side label. The B-side label correctly credits Steven Spiro for the first track.
Runout etchings indicate Allied & Sheffield metal work only, no mention of SP (Specialty). Some copies have a stamper impression "A" near the center hole on one or both sides, further indicating Allied pressing.

Very similar editions:
West End Girls says "West End Girls (Extended Version)" on the A-side label; the B-side label incorrectly credits Stephen Hague for the first track; runouts indicate Allied only.

Info & credits are inconsistently listed on the release, in part due to re-use of artwork from the UK 12". Mastering and pressing info is derived from runout etchings & stamps.

    Some copies with a Promo golden stamp on the front top right corner do exist.
