Promo for Dexys' second album, which was later officially called "Too-Rye-Ay". Issued in a cardboard gatefold cover wrapped in a gatefold polyester sleeve.

Inside sleeve lists "Background Information", "Promotional Campaign Outlines", "The Album Content": "Track Listing (out of sequence)", and lists the formats and catalog numbers (LP - MERS 5, M/C - MERSC 5) with release date May 21st 1982.

White label without track listing but has "MER 5 Dexys Midnight Runners" handwritten on the side A center label.
Tracklist is according to the cover, the real sequencing can differ.

The tracklist shows that the album was incomplete when this artwork was produced. "All In All (This One Last Wild Waltz)" is listed as "The Wild Hearted Waltz", while "Let's Make This Precious" is described simply as "Precious". There is no "Come On Eileen", but both "Yes Let's" (the song which became "Come On Eileen") and "Oh Eileen" are listed (although it is possible that this is one song title split over two lines).
