There are at least six editions of this German 12” single, all with the same sleeve, cat#, and list of tracks printed on them. Most are misprinted labels. They can be distinguished by what track their A-side actually plays and what matrix codes are etched in the run-out area near the labels:

1. Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax original 1983 edition, correctly labeled; its A-side actually plays the 8:20 Sex Mix edit, which is an echo-ey “dub” version bearing almost no resemblance to the hit single/LP version and is an edit of the original 16 minute “Sex Mix”. “83” appears in the A-side etchings. Also with “84” in the matrix etchings for the 2nd edition.

2. Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax 1984 reissue, correctly labeled; its A-side actually plays the 8:20 Sex Mix edit, which is an echo-ey “dub” version bearing almost no resemblance to the hit single/LP version and is an edit of the original 16 minute “Sex Mix”. “83” appears in the A-side etchings. B-side etching say “84”

3. Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax 1984 reissue, with incorrectly misprinted labels stating the 8.20 Sex Mix; its A-side actually plays the 7:25 U.S. Mix, which is an extended version that sounds like the hit single with a long instrumental intro. “84” appears in the A-side etchings.

4. Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax 1985 repress of the 1984 reissue, again with incorrectly misprinted labels stating the 8.20 Sex Mix; its A-side actually plays the 7:25 U.S. Mix. “85” appears in the A-side etchings.

5. Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax The 1989 repress of the 1984 reissue, again with incorrectly misprinted labels stating the 8.20 Sex Mix; its A-side actually plays the 7:25 U.S. Mix. “89” appears in the A-side etchings, but without “II” at the end.

6. Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax 1990s A repress of the 1984 reissue, again with incorrectly misprinted labels stating the 8.20 Sex Mix; its A-side actually plays the 7:25 U.S. Mix. Unlike previous editions, it has dark blue labels containing light blue text and the PolyGram-era Island logo. “89” appears in the A-side etchings, with “II” appended.

The 7:25 U.S. Mix has been mistakenly called New York mix due to compilation CD’s incorrectly calling it the New York Mix, in fact the 8.20 was un-officially known as the New York mix but its correct title is the “Sex Mix Edit”, source from Inside The Pleasuredome. The U.S. Mix source comes from the “And Suddenly There Came A Bang”, the official ZTT booklet.
