Notes

The album is the soundtrack to a 4-part serial for BBC2 of the same name written by Hanif Kureishi, and based on his book, The Buddha of Suburbia.

The only vinyl issue of this title in the world. The cover art's large dot pattern reveals that the images were enlarged from the original UK CD art but the text is sharp and vector-based, so this isn't simply a blow-up. The typo ("Perfomed by") is intact, as is reference to the booklet (adapted to a two-sided insert). Track numbering has been amended to reflect the two sides of the LP. (Illustrated db Discography)

It was the cd era, this record was never released in vinyl other than these unauthorized 500 copies from Brazil, it sounds great but I agree with the printing. So if you want this on vinyl it's your only chance.

Lots of bootlegs floating about on eBay for this, by the way, some with a different cover, some based on this cover. Be very wary about buying this one!

If this is an official release, it has to be the worlds poorest release. It looks woorse than a Bootleg with the typo and the pixels on the cover.
