On first sight you’d be forgiven for thinking that you are just looking at the regular UK 7″ of Ultravox!’s ‘Retro’ live EP from 1978…
But look closer though and you’ll then notice that only the ‘Ultravox!’ text is included (no Live / Retro text) and there is also a ‘Mini LP’ logo.
This little number is from 1981, an Australian only release, obviously timed by Island records to capitalise on the success of the ‘Vienna’ period. It features the four tracks from the ‘Retro’ EP plus the two tracks form the 7″ single that came free with initial copies of the ‘Ha!-Ha!-Ha!’ vinyl LP in 1977, namely ‘Quirks’ and ‘Modern Love’.
- The Wild, The Beautiful And The Damned (Live at the Rainbow, London)
- My Sex (Live at Huddersfield Poly)
- Young Savage (Live at the Marquee, London)
- The Man Who Dies Every Day (Live at Huddersfield Poly)
- Modern Love (Live)
As well as appearing on 12″ vinyl, there was also a cassette edition with the same selection of tracks.
