Released in September 1981, Altered Images’ debut album featured the band’s biggest single, “Happy
Birthday”, which peaked at number 2, produced by Martin Rushent (Human League, Stranglers, Buzzcocks).
The remainder of the album was produced by Steven Severin, co-founder of Siouxsie and The Banshees, and
went on to earn a Silver Disc, selling in excess of 60,000 copies.

This half-speed master edition is presented in its original sleeve, pressed on 180-gram heavyweight black
vinyl, featuring an obi strip, and housed in a poly-lined inner sleeve, with all the lyrics and credits on the 4-
page insert.

This new edition has been expertly mastered by Barry Grint at AIR Mastering from the original stereo tapes using precision half-speed mastering.

Half-speed mastering is a vinyl cutting technique that improves groove accuracy and transient information
creating an incredibly detailed stereo image with a natural high frequency response.
