Identical full jewel case artwork to the United States Maxi CD here, including "Printed in U.S.A." on the rear inlay. The US inserts were clearly photocopied as they are also slightly out of focus to the original US artwork in which all the text is visually more clear and crisp.

Additionally a sticker of some sort was used overlaying the modified barcode on the rear inlay (which is formatted differently with the same numbers). This resulted in a dark rectangular shadow visible around the barcode and track area and this was carried over in every printing of this inlay. This is not simply an artifact on the copy used to base this listing on, as the uploader has two copies that are identical, both purchased in New Zealand, one new in 1996, the second in 2004. Disc manufactured in Australia, which was common at the release date for many New Zealand releases. It is not however known to have ever actually been released in Australia.

Track 1 from the Album, Compact Disc and Cassette, "FOO FIGHTERS".
Tracks 3 & 5 recorded at The Laundry Room By Barrett Jones.
6 & 7 Recorded By Miti On August 26, 1995, at the Reading Festival. Released by arrangement with BBC Enterprises, Ltd.
All Tracks except Track 1 previously unreleased.
