The Australian version was as:

I Wanted To Tell Her [3:44]
I Wanted To Tell Her (mono) [3:44]

Contains two versions of the song: one in stereo-sound, one in mono. Both are edited. AS1 9068 release comes housed in a blue Arista sleeve. Unknown where it was made, but was purchased in Australia, so this is most likely the source of distribution.


The UK version came as:

I Wanted To Tell Her [7:06]
I Wanted To Tell Her (Stuck Stuck Stuck) [4:54]

One of the more unique Ministry finds because this UK release contains a cassette case attached (possibly glued) to the cover in the upper left-hand corner. There is no cover to the cassette case. The cassette is tan with red labels. They read "Al Jourgensen in conversation with Richard Skinner. Inc. excerpts from the forthcoming album 'Work For Love'". The interview is about 15 or so minutes and has new songs ("Here We Go", "Say You're Sorry", "Effigy [I'm Not An]") and conversation between the two. The cover is exactly the same as the 12" cover, both front and back. A-side is an extended mix. The B-side is the "Tongue-Tied Mix".

There is a lot of interesting tidbits on the cassette... Al mentions some bands he's producing, one being the Blackouts, so this is around the time he and Bill Rieflin and Paul Barker got together. He also mentions that the Blackouts had been on Situation 2, which corresponds to the COLD LIFE single listed at the top. He talks about the WaxTrax! record store and the COLD LIFE single. He talks about the upcoming tour for the album, etc.


The German version was as:

I Wanted To Tell Her [4:02]
I Wanted To Tell Her (Stuck Stuck Stuck) [4:54]


The US 12" version came as:

I Wanted To Tell Her [7:06]
I Wanted To Tell Her (Dub Version) [4:54]
Revenge [3:49]
Effigy (I'm Not An) [3:51]

This is supposedly a promo-single. More info needed. First version is an extended mix and "Dub Version" is actually the "Tongue-Tied Mix".


Anoter 12" US version came as:

I Wanted to Tell Her [7:06]
I Wanted to Tell Her (Tongue-Tied Mix) [4:49]


Notes culled from the German pressings: "Distributed by Ariola Group. Printed in West Germany by Mohndruck Graphische Betriebe."


Yet another 12" US version came as:

I Wanted to Tell Her [7:06]
I Wanted to Tell Her [7:06]
I Wanted to Tell Her (Tongue-Tied Mix) [4:49]
A Walk in the Park [5:04]


12" UK version:

I Wanted To Tell Her [7:06]
I Wanted To Tell Her (Tongue-Tied Mix) [4:54]
A Walk in the Park [5:04]

Sticker is attached on the front: "Promotion Copy CBS Not For Sale".
