I NEED THE COVER FOR THIS ALBUM SOMEONE SELL ME ONE!!! I bought a black star single and instead of the single it was the LP for the entire album got it for a buck. But I need the cover!! haha

The label on ther b-side reads:
11. Respiration
12. Twice Inna Lifetime

Actually Twice inna Lifetime is 13.
The 12th song (my favourite) Thieves in the Night is missing on the label!

Official LP has RJ signature (means this vinyl was masterd by Ray Janos at Sterling Sound) on the etching of A-side.
