So, the vinyl is cut as:
A-side="Computer Love"
B-side="The Model"

Duration only appears on the 'A' side, below Cat # on RH side of label.

“The Model” is great and all but “Computer Love” is an endearing masterpiece

My copy of this has - oddly- no run in groove to speak of on either side, making it very hard to put the needle to the start of the song.
