In 1981 Bronze records had been acquired by Polydor and this meant,
just like with Overkill, that UK copies that were printed after 1980 are distributed by Polydor and
the small print on the label doesn´t include “EMI Records Ltd” or “Made in Great Britain” like it did in
the EMI days. There is also an additional catalogue number within brackets, 2406 207, on the label
beneath BRON 523. On the front cover, right top corner, there is a square golden stamp informing
“Limited Edition Special Price”. I don´t know if, as with the Overkill album, there are Polydor copies
without this stamp. There are also copies with drill hole top left on the front.
Polydor used another pressing plant than EMI, they used Phonogram. Characteristic for this plant is
a ridge surrounding the label and a smaller groove about an inch away from the centre hole.
