Limited to 300 copies. "This compact disc has been digitally mastered for club use."

Originally released as a 2x12" in 1987, these remixes were released with sparse artwork to make it look like a test pressing from the Masterdisk Corporation. This CD artwork strives to do the same, and includes the same typewriter font and Masterdisk logos as the original. Comes in a clear plastic sleeve with a folded paper artwork insert. The catalog number continues on from the original catalog number's standard: VB-15320-1 was for sides A/B, VB-15320-2 was for sides C/D.

Tracks 1, 2, 4 thru 6, and 8 have never been released officially on CD. Although the mastering here is professional and the sound quality is perfect, these specific tracks sound slightly 'pitched-up' when compared to their vinyl originals.

Track 11 is an unlisted hidden track in which Simon reads his lyrics for <I>Skin Trade</I> as poetry. The sound quality on this track alone is poor.

Track 6 is also known as "Notoriousaurus Rex (Master Mix)" or "Master Mix (Notoriousaurus Rex)". The version featured here is the full Master Mix, which included a remixed segment of <I>Proposition</I> around the 4 1/2 minute mark. The US original <I><B>Master Mixes</I></B> release did not include this segment. Full credits for track 6 read as follows: 'collaged by Tuta Aquino, featuring mixes by Daniel Abraham, Mark S. Berry, Murray Elias and Justin Strauss, The Latin Rascals, Larry Levan, Curtis/Mantronik and Nile Rodgers, with edits by Tuta Aquino, The Latin Rascals, Jose "Chep" Nunez, Omar Santana and The Hit Squad.'

Tracks 7 to 11 are bonus tracks which were not part of the original <I><B>Master Mixes</I></B> release.

Unfortunately, this is a bootleg and not an official release. Most of the tracks here (if not all of them) came from a vinyl master source.
