Round-up of non-album tracks,
This review is from: Substance (Audio CD)
Perfecly complementing their two essential studio albums, Unknown Pleasures and Closer, this expanded compilation re-issue rounds up their legendary singles, including Transmission/Novelty, Love Will Tear Us Apart/These Days and Atmosphere/She's Lost Control, none of which appeared on the albums and are rightly regarded as among their greatest works.
Substance also contains their first release in full, the EP An Ideal For Living (recorded in December 1977 at the point when they changed their name from Warsaw, but only released privately by the band in a limited edition the following summer); two tracks they recorded for the EP A Factory Sample (their first work with producer Martin Hannett); both sides of a freebie flexi-disc single (Komakino/Incubation); a French B-side (Dead Souls) and two outtakes from the Unknown Pleasures sessions.
This is not a complete round-up but in its more complete CD edition will probably satisfy the less obsessive Joy Division audience.

The version on Unknown Pleasures is not the same recording.
