Limited version of LP with an additional outer mailer sleeve. This sleeve has similar artwork to the LP sleeve on the front, but unique (for the time) artwork on the back cover depicting a tape machine being removed from its packaging plus the track names of the LP. Mailer also has a sticker with it's own catalogue number (WBRLX 1) and bar code.

Enclosed is the "Massive" version of the LP (catalogue number (WBRLP 1)).

Outer mailer, LP sleeve and labels has the band name as Massive which was briefly used due to the ongoing 1991 Gulf war.

Includes a printed inner sleeve with credits and additional artwork.

Inner sleeve contains a reference to "massive attack" on the vocal credits for track A3.

Track A1, "Safe From Harm", contains a sample from Billy Cobham's track "Stratus" released in 1973 from the album "Spectrum" on label Atlantic.
Track A4, "Be Thankful For What You've Got", is a cover of the William DeVaughn song of the same name.

Made in the UK.

Sound is clean and full. Great pressing. I just wish I knew how to store the whole thing. The box is cumbersome.
