Never For Ever - Edited Highlights Flexi Disc: Square Version
This is the second of two promotional flexi discs that were issued in 1980 and features highlights from Never For Ever. The circular version, which is the more common of the two, was issued and distributed in the UK. You can see that post right here if you haven't already. As far as I can recall, the square version was issued in some music magazine in Belgium. I can't remember the name of the magazine for the life of me, but I'm sure you can probably research that information online somewhere if you're interested in finding that out.
Interestingly enough, both versions of the flexi were made in the UK, which also means the printed information and catalogue number is exactly the same on both. The only discernible difference between the two is the shape.
As I mentioned several years back on my first post for the circular version, this is the only flexi that I've ever collected - and I do count both versions as one, in case there's any confusion about that. Flexi discs can be quite problematic with warping problems, not to mention their ghastly sound quality to start with. Even the silver ink used for printing the text tends to be quite patchy and unevenly distributed. I'm just not a fan of these things at all.
