Notes

Original Sleeve Design (embossed coin motif on a special silver foil sleeve).

Mastered at Tape One.
℗1981 Dindisc/Dinsong Ltd.

The single was originally to have featured a B side track titled Experiments In Vertical Take Off. The song hadn't actually been written at the time, but merely existed as a title. The single sleeves were subsequently printed with this title, but Andy and Paul had decided against the idea, and chose a brand new song called Navigation.

The original sleeve design for the 12" version had used an embossed coin motif on a silver foil sleeve. DinDisc label owner Carol Wilson had brought back a lira coin with St. Joan on it from an Italian skiing trip and proposed the design. Graphic Designer Peter Saville wasn't satisfied with this sleeve design, which led to the new stained glass version. A limited number of the coin foil sleeves, however, were issued.

The 12" stained glass sleeve design was printed on a silver reflective background front and reverse. Later versions of the sleeve were non-reflective and featured a grey back. A third issue used a white back and made an attempt to correct the track listing. However, it listed the third track as 'Of All The Things We've Done'.

    The sleeve itself is worth possessing this gem - the music speaks for itself, and for decades. And never gets old. Nor one gets tired of listening. Timelessly beautiful. Oh world, where did you go wrong after this?!
