Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark: ‘Architecture & Morality’ USA LP (Epic/Virgin/DinDisc ARE37721)

US 'Architecture & Morality' front sleeve design

When it comes to version craziness, Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark win in spades, what with their numerous colour variations for their first few LP sleeves and later CD issues. We’ll come to those in more detail on another occasion. This time round, a calling card – here is the American issue of ‘Architecture & Morality’. Musically, it is no different – but as you can see from the sleeve reproduced above the cover design is a variation on the UK edition – with the photograph much larger and the titles above and below it.
