This record was supposedly only pressed in 10 copies - It was pressed in a standard run (for this label) of 6 test pressings and 4 copies with printed labels. There may have been more made outside of this, but the total number is said to be no more than 10. It was never intended for retail release and thus there was never a full promo run pressed.

There appears to have been two versions of this - one that has the same printed labels as the retail version (which is incorrect here, as "Tribute" isn't included). Some of these copies came with a sticker over the track titles saying "LIMITED EDITION PRE-RELEASE". The track "Asian Code 7" isn't mentioned anywhere on the actual record.

Then there's a white label version with handwritten track names (at best - if all copies were "signed" is unknown). On at least one of those, Maurizio Begotti of Etnica wrote the title for the B-side track as "Alien Communication", while in the DAT circles the track was circulated under the name "Asian Code 7".
