Remark:
The front covers are for all German 12" releases identical, although the backside shows the difference! One has 3 tracks mentioned and on the other there is written on the sleeve that it contains 4 tracks.

3 track backcover:

A:Hiroshima (extended version)
B1:Hiroshima (dub mix)
B2:Heaven Can Wait(US..)

4 track backcover:

A1. Hiroshima (single version)
A2. Hiroshima (extended version) B1. Hiroshima (dub mix)
B2. Heaven Can Wait (US-remix)

You will find this difference also on the label of the records itself. As the record from the 3 track backcover has on its label 3 tracks it contains all 4 though! But we have also seen 3 track backcovers with 4 track labels!
