additional information
The original extensive booklet also included images and artwork taken from the Scotland Rocks For Kosovo concert and Neon Lights, so was quite a mixture. It was decided to simplify the artwork for the inner sleeve, just concentrating on the artwork motifs of Cry and including two large pictures of Jim and Charlie.

The back cover of the sleeve was based on the back of the booklet, not the back of the CD. Again, it was simplier and scaled up to LP size better than the CD design.

There was a discussion about reversing the picture on the front of the LP. (This is because the original still, taken from the Dancing Barefoot video, was reversed.) In the end, it was decided to leave it how it was.
