additional information
This was the first Simple Minds CD.

The CD booklet featured exclusive pictures and graphics. The cover design was also notiably different; it looks like the printers never added a gold colour to the printer leaving it a frosty white colour.

Some of these Nimbus pressed CDs are starting to suffer from 'CD Rot'.
