Notes

This differs from another very similar release in terms of the tray insert: the left hand spine (as viewed looking at the tray insert) reads from bottom to top (not top to bottom as with the other release); and the barcode numerals on this release do not sit on the bottom edge of the barcode box.
It differs from this other release in terms of the artwork, as follows:
- the other release does not have "Printed in West Germany" on the last page of the booklet and on the tray insert;
- the other release does not have "MADE IN W. GERMANY" at the bottom of the label; and
- the other release lacks the ® symbol in the Mercury logo on the label.
This release also has a different matrix no.
