The LP was pressed up as a double LP so When Spirits Rise was included on the LP for the first time.
Rather than include the plain inner sleeves of the original LP, the two sleeves now included previously unpublished photographs of the band. The credits
were removed from the gatefold and added to the inner sleeve of the second disc.
