Limited to 300 copies 2015 re-issue CD in clear PVC wallet with title insert.

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.

Tracks 1, 2, 4 through 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 is know as "Reading Records" from the Japanese flexi, in which Simon reads his lyrics for Skin Trade as poetry, as well as John and Nick read their favourite lyrics written by Simon.

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 Proposition around the 4 1/2 minute mark. The US original "Master Mixes" 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 "Master Mixes" release.
