Breathing - France 7" Single (Bat Sleeve)
The France 'Bat Sleeve' of Breathing is fairly rare and difficult to come by these days. This one does tend to be somewhat expensive when it does turn up.
The record labels are silver injected moulded ones, and one of the downsides to the silver paint is that it can wear off over time - either through natural wear, using different types of cleaning products (which you should never use anyway), or from the natural oils in your fingers if you stupidly touch the labels to begin with.
The labels on my copy have had worn areas on them for years, and since this is the first time I'm actually including the labels on here for this record, I tried to fix them up a bit before putting them on. I'm not sure how well I did, but I did try.
