Some songs are incorrectly titled on the back sleeve:
B2 mistitled on sleeve as "Cleo Patra"

Labels gives the album title as "Madam Stan" and gives altogether different song titles in fake Italian, used by bootleggers to avoid detection during manufacture:

A4 listed as "L'Uomo Da Bollire Nella Busta"
A5 listed as "C.D."
A6 listed as "Canzone Per Ruth"
B1 listed as "Non C'È Problema!"
B2 listed as "Patric Leo"
B3 listed as "Seconda Facciata Baby"
B4 listed as "Funzione Del Bagno"
B5 listed as "Gente Di Gomma"
B6 listed as "Scabrosso"

A4,A6,B4,B5 released officially in 2000 on Antbox.
