Why does this release show up in The Stack (Erasure) with the picture from Erasure - The Circus?
The Key Release is clearly on the Master as Erasure - The Circus, but this release's picture is not appearing...

Also, "The Circus" came out BEFORE "The Two Ring Circus", yet Two Ring is listed first here: Erasure

Can some better-educated-than-me soul elaborate as to what The Database is doing...? Thanks...
