Track 1 includes an intro (spoken word piece plus fanfare) which appears at the start of the track. This is also how it appears on the original Part One 12". The reissue of 100 Lbs had this piece removed. Therefore the length of "Rude" is 4:05 on this release, and 3:47 on the reissue.
Track 11 includes a hidden, untitled track at the end of "See You On Monday", which ends at 11:37. There's 1 minute of silence before the untitled track starts at 12:38 and lasts until the end at 15:35.

So does anyone know why the special edition of this is geo-blocked due to copyright restrictions? or anywhere I can purchase online?

Though not as polished as it could be, Herbert’s debut album, <I>100 Lbs.</I>, still shows a unique sensibility and approach to house music. “Thinking of You” undoubtedly has the beat to make it work, but the smooth synths give it a bouncy outlook. “Oo Licky” beings to showcase of that Herbert humor, with the vocal sample and the digitized voice exhorting the listener to chill out. My favorite track here, “Friday They Dance” is deep and gracious, starting off quietly and content to maintain that mood. A few tracks seem a bit underdeveloped (“Take Me Back” and “Deeper,” for instance), but those shortcomings are more than compensated for by other excellent tracks (like “Resident” or “See You On Monday”). Herbert has helped house move in a new direction, and this album shows the first few steps he took.
