additional information
The Best Of was given away with the newspaper Donna Moderna in Italy as promotion for the band's 2012 summer gigs.

The Real Life by Raven Maize was omitted along with its credits in the booklet.

The CDs and booklets were fully reproduced with one or two small differences. The catalogue numbers and bar code were removed whilst an extra copyright notice for the newspaper appeared on the back sleeve. Unfortunately the now out-of-date discography was kept.

Unlike many newspaper cover discs, the CD wasn't fixed to the front of the newpaper, but was available separately. It was fixed to a double-sided piece of A4 card with a punched hole for hanging on a hook. The artwork was taken from the New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84) and featured Mike Ogletree on the back with Mel Gaynor on the front. Arguably this packaging was far better than anything Virgin did over ten years previously.
