Well, mine is different also. It's a 1986 BigTime Canadian Pressing. The photo and typeset has a pink tinge and the order is

Side I
Human Jungle
Souther Mark Smith ('Orig.' version)
President Reagan's Birthday Present
Jazz Butcher v Prime Minister
Grooving in the Bus Lane

Side II
Death Dentist
Big Saturday
Caroline Wheeler....
The Devil is My Friend >>

Quite different so I doubt you suffer from madness. I bought this copy in the States. To further confuse matters I distinctly remember seeing a quite different copy of Bloody Nonsense in Sydney, Australia. The layout of the type was the same but the cover photos had I a green tinge and I'm pretty sure one of the songs was 'Marnie' but not the Muscovite Mix that was found on Scandal. That puts it us with 3 different lots of nonsense.

Big Time were fairly big before they went under and printed their artists in several countries where as all the Glass Records stuff I have came out of the UK. Maybe the album differed between countries.

Talking of different versions, I've got 3 different track listings for Distressed Gentlefolk:

* The CD has the bonus tracks of South America
* A white cover LP has the original listing
* A blue cover LP came with a bonus EP with songs off the Conspiracy & Hard
