The booklet mistakenly credits Dave McCracken as the piano player in "I Want It All". However, there is no piano in "I Want It All". He really should be credited for the piano in "The Darkest Star."

Initially came with a hype sticker on the cellophane wrapping which

conjunction with this release.

Came in a standard jewel case with clear disc tray
