additional information
The labels, exclusive 16-page LP booklet and gatefold sleeve were all faithfully reproduced. A nice touch were the black inner sleeves, which matched the plain black inner sleeve of the originals. However, the front cover wasn't embossed like the original limited edition.

Unfortunately all the text was now too small to read.
