Cheaper, different cover, Snapper catalogued, Charly issue.

The same audio as the original Virgin LP and CD issues, (despite discrepancies in the track titles and timings) but clothed in a completely different cover. A cover that was in fact never seen, or approved by any member of the band before release. There are also 4 pages of rather contentious liner notes, that unfortunately perpetuate some bad journalistic mistakes which have since been endlessly repeated to become part of the band's 'history'. However if you are a completist or ain't got so many pennies the music is just as great as always.

Note: Unfortunately, the only way the musicians will benefit in any way from sales of this release is if you buy it here - otherwise they can expect no royalties on sales or publishing.
