This is the same as the 1982 Rocktopus release except it was issued on the Hansa label and came with the catalogue number Hansa 12 (the Rocktopus issue uses Catalogue # 103 706). Underneath 'HANSA 12' the German re-issue catalogue number 103 706 is printed too.

The Catalogue number 'HANSA 12' is the same used for the UK single "I Second That Emotion" from 1982.

A limited run of these singles were produced for the UK market because during the single's chart run there were problems with pressing plants and distribution in the UK. Unlike the other HANSA 12 singles this one is backed with 'Quiet Life' instead of 'Halloween'. Also 'I Second That Emotion' is NOT the remixed version by Steve Nye, except it is the original/Assemblage version of the song.

This release was supplied in Generic Sleeves.
