One of my all time favourite YMO tracks (Technopolis that is). I bought this Japanese 7” recently & was surprised to find it is a unique version using some different synth sounds, not as punchy, but more interesting than the version on the flip of the UK release of Firecracker or on the Solid State Survivor CD/LP. Does anyone know if this version was released on a CD?...ps this version is on Youtube if you want to check it out...type in TECHNOPOLIS 〔YMO〕to find it.
