additional information
The standard edition appeared in the shops as soon as the limited edition sold out. It was the same pressing but was housed in a slightly different package. The cover was not embossed and the 16-page booklet had gone; the album's credits were printed inside the gatefold instead.

"Dedicated To Our Fans, Friends And Families wasn't included in the albums credits.

additional information

This included two separate sleeves which carried all the band pictures and album credits. This version of the album quickly became the hardest to track down and remains scarce today.
