additional information
Highly prized by collectors, despite being an obscure pressing, it does surface from time to time, mainly due to the desirability of its unique sleeve.

This pressing uses high quality vinyl and card, so remaining copies should be in good condition.

additional information
On the surface, the German CD edition of New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) is the same as the UK edition. Apart from the blue coloured disc itself, the booklet, cover and catalogue number is exactly the same.

However, this German edition features the extended version of the title track.

It isn't known if this was intentional or not (there's nothing on the sleeve to suggest anything different).
