Quark, Strangeness, and Charm/ The Forge of Vulcan 1977 (Charisma)
Quark, Strangeness, and Charm/ The Iron Dream 1977 (European Charisma)


The 1977 is the 12" vinyl album - later reissued as a CD but not all
that rare I would have thought.
The 1994 is the EP and also a CD single
The two 7" are vinyl only releases - the 2nd probably being
considerably rarer than the first though I'd have to check my price list
to be sure.

I'm not sure why so many versions are listed unless one is a vinyl
offer or perhaps an overseas (say Japanese) issue.  I don't think
it came out as a box set?
