Two colour label CDs in slim double jewelcase with colour eight page booklet.
Digitally remastered by Simon Heyworth at Sanctuary Studios August/September 2001
Artwork by Bogdan Zarkowski
Sleeve notes by Billy Sloan, Glasgow 2001
Thanks to Jason Day and Paul Bromby at Virgin Records.
The Best Of was given away with the newspaper Donna Moderna in Italy as promotion for
the band's 2012 summer gigs.
The Real Life by Raven Maize was omitted along with its credits in the booklet.
The CDs and booklets were fully reproduced with one or two small differences. The catalogue numbers and bar code
were removed whilst an extra copyright notice for the newspaper appeared on the back sleeve. Unfortunately
the now out-of-date discography was kept.
Unlike many newspaper cover discs, the CD wasn't fixed to the front of the newpaper, but was available separately.
It was fixed to a double-sided piece of A4 card with a punched hole for hanging on a hook. The artwork was taken
from the New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) and featured
Mike Ogletree on the back with Mel Gaynor
on the front. Arguably this packaging was far better than anything Virgin did over ten years
