Released in a red/yellow sleeve with "The Model" on front. The track-listing stated on back of sleeve is "The Model c/w Computer Love". However, the vinyl and center labels are identical to release Computer Love (which has a Yellow/Green sleeve designating 'Computer Love' as the A side).
So, the vinyl is cut as:

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

    What's the difference (if any) between this and https://www.discogs.com/release/12101812-Kraftwerk-The-Model-Computer-Love ?

      Computer Love sounds like a very different mix to me, very different to the album version - especially the mixing and percussion (which cuts out/is mixed down intermittently), and the occasional 'whooshing' sort of sound (which is very high in the mix). Really interesting variant here..(or I might just have a weird pressing!)

        “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.
