VINYL - Info : Too fast for love

Here are a good guide to separate all the different pressings

Too Fast for Love is the debut studio album by Mötley Crüe. The first edition of 900 copies was released on November 10, 1981, on the band's Leathür Records label. Elektra Records signed the band the following year, at which point the album was remixed and partially re-recorded. This re-release, with a different track listing and slightly different artwork (e.g., red lettering on the cover and a different interior photograph of the band), has become the standard version from which all later reissues derive. The original mix of the album remained unreleased on CD until 2002, when it was included in the Music to Crash Your Car to: Vol. 1 box set compilation. The songs "Stick to Your Guns" and "Live Wire" were released as singles for the album. The album cover is a tribute to The Rolling Stones' album Sticky Fingers.

The album was remixed under the supervision of Roy Thomas Baker and re-released on August 20, 1982, by Elektra Records, with which the band had recently signed its first recording contract. The Elektra version had a different track order and omitted the song "Stick to Your Guns", as well as the first verse from the title track.However, the initial release of the album on Elektra in Canada (on both vinyl and cassette) was not the remixed version, but instead was the original Leathür Records version with the Elektra label on it, and included the song "Stick to Your Guns". This was released two months before the remixed version was released by Elektra worldwide. The reason for this was that Mötley Crüe was about to embark on a Canadian tour and Elektra wanted to ensure that a product was available while the band was touring the country. Once the remixed version was completed, later Canadian pressings were the same as the Elektra version everywhere else.

There are three known vinyl pressings of the Leathür Records version, along with one known cassette release, and a rare silkscreen red picture disc promotional CD. The first vinyl pressing had white lettering on the cover and the record label was white with black lettering. The back cover photo of Vince Neil shows him with a large airbrushed hairdo. The second pressing has red lettering on the cover and the record label is again white with black lettering. The second pressing also has 2 different insert photos of the band (See picture below). The third pressing has red lettering on the cover and the record label is black with white lettering.
