additional information
This reissue by Disky could do little to change the artwork of the Virgin release. The booklet was reproduced faithfully as were the graphics on the CD. The only real differences were the use of a transparent CD tray and spine which carried the album artwork and title respectively.

A large number were produced so copies are still easy to find.
