For some reason this got by me on it's release in 1980 but when i heard it in 1991 it "blew me away" as the old saying goes.I fled at the greatest of speed to the now defunct "Ken's Records" in Aldershot.Scouring the shelves and bombing through the boxes i was rewarded after a forty minute search with a PRISTINE 12" in PC as mentioned by Pine-Monkey.Still play it to this day!!.
The taller building on the far right of the label is the John Hancock Center. Appears to have a giant X over the windows.Comment by YankeeDisc:
...many thanks Tom.
I also notice that two of the images fail to add the ® for I assume the registered image of the "Chicago Towers", as the base blank image before overprinting (litho).
One is image (#1359278) from 30 Plastic Products, Memphis, TN, and the other is (#850736) from 72 PRC, Richmond, IN.Comment by musictom:

...it looks to me that the type setter just got the spacing a tad wrong, maybe as a first pass, then corrected the error, for the similar printed example, also at plant #30, posted view at head of page, by pine-monkey, which is 100% correct.Comment by HarvestmanMan:
Images added. The label is pretty washed-out compared to other Mercury pressings with this label...and if it makes a difference, it is on vinyl and not styrene.Comment by BEATLEJOHN:
...hmmmmm....a test pressing maybe???....JohnComment by HarvestmanMan:
Nope, I found it in a box at a local record store.
The record does not have any artist credit - it just gives the name of the song and the name of the album that it was taken from.
