Notes

This is the UK release on Chrysalis, there is also a US release that has the same cat#, however the two releases are different. The front covers only vary on the size of the border, whereas the rear covers whilst using the same images are laid out on opposite sides to each other. The UK release shows the images on the RHS.
The major difference though is with the track listing on the A-side of both releases, the US release starts with "Sleepwalk" and ends with "Astradyne".
Both releases share the same track listing on the B-side.

Recorded at RAK (London) Mixed at Conny's Studio (near Koln)

        Mine has only a side A label, no side B label, and stamped matrices:
        CHR 1296 A // 4▽4 2 0 W 1 2 5
        CHR 1296 B // 4▽4 2 0 W 1 2 5
        Everything else as per this 1st UK pressing.

          In my copy the inner sleeve report the following: "made in western germany".
          Anyone could check if is it the right inner sleeve?

            Has anyone come across this, I picked up Ultravox Vienna LP the other day. It wasn't till I got it home I noticed that both sides have the same "side one" label stuck on them? On one side someone has written "side 2" although it looks and feels like it's printed on. As far as I can tell this is the original UK pressing from 1980.

              Prevented getting to number 1 in 1980 by Joe Dolce Music Theatre - Shaddup You Face, that has to be soul-destroying for any band!!
