    Mine has a "promotional copy not for sale" sticker covering the barcode on the back of the album cover 🤷‍♂️

      I’ve got a Frankenstein copy-it has a upc barcode sticker overtop what I think is the original Europe UPC barcode(sorry I don’t want to peel it up) and down to the right of the white “the chemical brothers”logo is an Astralwerks sticker🤷‍♂️maybe an early import to US. All in OG shrink!

        Just some additional stuff read online

        The LP features a series of messages on the run-out grooves. One of them, "Huw is innocent!" on side four, apparently refers to Rowlands' brother. This message would later be referenced on the LP of Push the Button (2005), where the side four run-out message claims "Huw is still innocent!" Lol

        The cover of the album was from a 1970s fashion shoot reject box, according to Ed Simons.

        "Song to the Siren" was made simply using a Hitachi hi-fi system, an Atari ST, a sampler, and a keyboard, using a sample of This Mortal Coil.

          How can you tell the difference between the original 1995 pressing & the 2012 reissue if there's no shrink (so no sticker)?

            It’s a great debut and their sound is already formed here. Some great beats and tasty basslines. Their music suits vinyl far more than CD which makes it seem sterile and soulless.

              I have this same UK issue pressing, but it has an Astralwerks label sticker on the back cover (along with a new UPC code sticker over the original bar code).

                I never understood why the edit from the end of In Dust We Trust into Song To The Siren has carried over to the vinyl pressing, I understand it on the cd but its seems weird that there wasn't 2 seperate masters one for cd & one for vinyl where that mix was taken out.

                  My version of this has pictures as the centre labels with the boxes displaying track details as this issue.

                    other than Playground For A Wedgeless Firm, every track is good. a must-have.
