Released on 25th September 1981 to rapturous applause on both BBC radio 1 and 2, “Labelled With Love” was a welcome return to the charts and reached number 4 with a 10 week chart run. There were rumours that a remix was done for promotion only in the UK and released with a few jazzy overdubs. Was also released in Italy. The b-side was “Squabs On Forty Fab” - a medley of hits and misses.

Record Collector: Another interesting sleeve is the one for "Labelled With Love". Why was it withdrawn? 

Glenn Tilbrook: It was withdrawn because it was a dire design. I remember it well, blood red lettering seemingly chosen at random, a bit like a blackmail letter. Completely inappropriate for the song- not much of an idea. But in fact, interestingly enough, someone came up to me yesterday with a foreign picture sleeve, which they had out in Europe, which was the same one that we had asked to be withdrawn. So it got out somehow.

RC: Were any British copies ever released? 

GT: Not as far as I know.
