  • Recorded At – Paradiso Amsterdam
This is the original first release from the original pressing plates. It does contain Shadowplay as track B6. 
All re-issues were pressed without the knowledge of the original bootlegger. 
The original pressing plates were either lost or damaged and almost all reissues except a later confirmed clear vinyl version failed to include Track B6 - "Shadowplay". 
This first release is known to sound more powerful with more bass fidelity. A later generation re-recording was likely used in the manufacture of all re-issues that did not include Shadowplay. 

This first release pressed on black vinyl.
Labels are blank white with either no writing or hand written labels in German.
Matrix run-off etchings on first edition contain hyphens (Re-issues do not). Sides A and D are stamped, sides B and C are hand written.

This first release came in two cover variants:
This version: Matte cover with a black stripe along the bottom of the front cover and a maximum price notice with a dedication to "Josef Ertl" on the on back cover, unique to the first vinyl pressing. 

Version 2: Glossy cover with a black stripe along the bottom of the front cover. No maximum price notice and no dedication to "Ertl" on the on back cover (this cover is the same as that used for the first re-issue from the same manufacturer, but the vinyl in this case is still this same black first pressing).

Side A and B plus tracks C1 and C2 Live: Paradiso, Amsterdam January 11 1980.
Tracks C3 and C4 from the "Licht Und Blindheit" single.
Tracks C5, D1, D2 and D5-D6 from the "Komakino" flexi.
"Incubation 1" = "Incubation P.1" = "Incubation"
"Incubation 2" = "Incubation P.2" = "As you said"
Tracks D3 and D4 are from "A Factory Sample".

C1 misspelled She's Lost Kontrol.
