Notes

Track A4: “オウム” inspiration by 松本隆 ("Omu" inspiration by Takashi Matsumoto).

1981 reissue on Bellwood label with blue obi strip, catalog number K25A-182 on the strip and in the upper right corner of front cover. Includes black and white insert with band photo on one side and personnel info and lyrics on the other side. Olive green labels on LP with JASRAC logo, catalog number, plus additional numbers SKLB-6149 and SKLB-6150 listed below on the respective sides, and also in the runout wax.

Compared to the King pressing (Happy End), this copy has a different cut made by JVC/Victor. The easiest way to differentiate between the two versions is that the JASRAC logo is printed slightly larger on the labels for the King pressing.

    There exist two different cuttings for this reissue: one done by JVC/Victor (which was already mentioned), and another done by King Record (likely as a repress). A while ago I found a copy sold online that had the "SKLB 6149-7 / SKLB 6150-7" runouts. Could anyone confirm the runout markings their copies?
