Originally released in the UK as a limited edition 3x12" (45 RPM) titled Metal Box, which was packaged in a round metal box.

Warner Brothers in North America didn't want to pay for the extra packaging and triple vinyl, so it was changed to a 2x12" (33 RPM) in a standard gatefold sleeve, and the title changed to Second Edition. Virgin UK used this format & title for a reissue in early 1980 once the original Metal Box sold out.

"Swan Lake" was titled "Swan Lake (Death Disco)" on Metal Box, and is a slightly different version of the track "Death Disco" that was released as a single in June, 1979.

Although the album has a Warner Bros. catalog number, the album cover and labels use the Island logo.

Matrix notes: the "✶" and "STERLING" are stamped, the preceding matrix info is etched.

Bad Sunny
My copy was purchased brand new in 1985 or 1986 from a small town record store. It has the Island logo on the gatefold jacket's rear, but has Warner Bros. labels. The matrix numbers match except for the fact that I do not see an asterisk on any of the four sides and on sides 1 and 3 there is a *very light* etched "#4".
