 I have this record to thank for me collecting vinyl. For me it was the tune that started it all when I heard it on Annie Nightingale's show. My collection of around 15,000 records... I have OMD to thank possibly! Early uk copies = grey labels, later repress with pink.

 Scans of powder blue labels uploaded. These must be a reissue, but from when I can't say.

 label variation - paper labels with black text and logos, background is very light grey on the left, and pink to the right
Matrix on this one is DIN-6-A4 and B side is DIN-6-B-1

 That would make it an export issue.

 L/H label scans added. These were bought new as shown, but was this done by Virgin for Europe? It looks like jukebox operator versions or similar, just cut out vital information like title. I remember I bought several others at the time, Virgin related.

 the "forgotten" single - time and time again this gets left off singles compilations!
I believe there are two types of cover for this single - a flimsy paper sleeve, and a substantial glossy card sleeve
song is about a phone box OMD used to frequent - the number in the song is 632-3003 - I believe the box still exists

 Indeed it is Kokodog - well spotted! Rear cover as well, by the look of it...

Zabadak: good question, especially given that it charted - which is more than "Electricity" originally managed...

 Why is this not on their singles compilation?
