Release cat numbers:
LP - CR-189 / SHOUT-246
7" - CRDJ-1891/ SHOUT 246-7

Note: The reissue of the promo 7" as a bonus with the album was intentionally devised, to respect the concept of a record company promo and integrity of this first time reissue of the promo format. Therefore was not orignally marketed to sold separately from the album. Hence the SHOUT! Productions Category was notated to reference the connection of the 7" promo to the album.

The sound quality on this limited edition Japan package as previously mentioned is superb. Pressed on thick virgin vinyl. The sleeve is a high quality printed, heavy thick card design identical to the original release. These Japan copies are identical in every detail to the original release except the reissue cat number SHOUT-246 is discreetly printed underneath the original cat number on the vinyl label disc.

By the way, if you're lucky, you may find the Disk Union promos with the LP OBI strip and 7" picture insert showing James Mason posing with a guitar. The retail edition of this LP has a sticker-ed plastic outer sleeve and no picture insert with the bonus 7".

The Japan reissue is not to be confused with the more common US or Europe represses. All the SHOUT copies of this album come with the bonus 7" promo and either an OBI strip or sticker-ed sleeve clearly showing it's a Japan reissue. Only a 1000 copies were pressed in total.

Hope this helps anyone looking for the quality Japan reissue of this classic album.

This Japan reissue is not shrink-wrapped sealed. It only comes in a resealable plastic sleeve/bag.
