additional information
This reissue CD was issued after the release of Real Life and renewed interest in the back catalogue.

As with other reissues, only minimum changes were made to the artwork. This was just limited to the addition of new catalogue numbers to the labels, booklet and inner.

However, someone at Virgin didn't realise that the booklet, which normally would've included the album's artwork, was designed for a "fat" jewelcase. As the original booklet had the "hand of Jim" artwork, then this appeared to be the album's artwork (as also explains why its missing both band and album titles). Therefore this became a unique pressing.

Virgin also sent out promo issues. These were the same as the commerical versions, but had blue promo stickers over the bar-code.
