- The first and second pressings actually contain different mixes. They are both original blue/white label versions, but the initial pressing (A-1) has what I can only presume is the 'original' mix, while the second (A-2) has a slightly smoother mix, the main difference being that Miss Styrene's "No more-UH!' yelps at the end of each verse are faded quickly - presumably in the interests of radio friendliness. As mentioned elsewhere here, the sax is quieter during the break and I think the guitar is toned down a little too, but the vocal is the easiest way to spot it. It seems there are a lot more A-2 kicking around, and that is also the mix that appears on the 12" single.
- I have a copy with in run out side two : Poly Styrene is a cliche V 189 B 1. Someone else has a same copy?
- The sax break at about 2 minutes in on the A2 version is of a lower volume than A1 which is probably why the vinyl looks different. Otherwise the versions are the same.
- saw a discussion once on here regarding the A 1 B2 version having a slightly different mix and ending (on "oh bondage") can anyone confirm or deny this..
- Edited 8 years agoUnlisted is the "A" label version which seems to be the earliest pressing, possibly used as a promo. The large capital "A" sits above the "Oh bondage, up yours!" lettering. Very rare and hugely sought after with copies recently selling for £100+....with picture sleeve.
