As a triangular hype sticker on the sleeve shrink wrap indicates "Includes Free Single - Limited Edition", this is one of the first 10,000 pressings with an additional 7", housed in a plain dark-orange/red sleeve (the sleeve is unpunched, top-opening with thumb-cutout on top back edge, glue-tab side).

The cover sticker from shrink wrap may have been discarded when acquiring 2nd hand issues. Also, it was not always applied accurately to top left corner.

Track C recorded live, 'The Nashville', 10 Dec 1976.
Produced at T.W. Studios, Fulham; Jan/Feb 1977.

Rattus Norvegicus (alternative title The Stranglers IV) is the debut studio album by the Stranglers, released on 15 April 1977. It was one of the highest-selling albums of the punk era in Britain, eventually achieving platinum record sales. Two of its tracks, "Peaches" and "(Get A) Grip (On Yourself)", were released as 7" singles in the UK. The album was originally going to be titled Dead on Arrival but it was changed at the last minute.

The Stranglers IV, which it wasn’t, was their first album and it was, of course, called ‘Rattus Norvegicus’, ornery buggers the Stranglers are, but this is a brilliant debut, released in April 1977. I have a copy already but it is completely knackered so I bought another for £. 0 i the used bin at my local record store

The Stranglers IV - Rattu. has been added to your Basket. You can stop you inner deliberation. One of the best debut albums ever by anyone was this release, Rattus Norvegicus. In 1977 the alum hit the top ten on release without a preceeding hit single, the first band to do so since The Beatles.

The Stranglers' early work is most properly described as stripped-down pop played with a hardcore sensibility; fairly lengthy songs with frequent solo breaks, prominent keyboard usage, and occasional employment of vocal harmony sets them apart from their peers. But snarling lead singing that puts forth steful lyrics predominates here, clearly showing the group's punk affinity.

I own a copy with the green sticker on the red sleeve of the freebie single top right of sleeve. Definitely hasn't been taken off shrinkwrap. There is no damage to sticker
This should be merged with the main Rattus Norvegicus release
Oddly enough I got an English pressing of the album with an Irish pressing of the 45.
