• Sleeve artwork is a reprint of the European international release. Some of the printed catalog numbers, distribution codes and credits on back cover do not apply, as this release was licensed for distribution in Czechoslovakia only.

• Laminated glossy sleeve.

• Unlike the subsequent late 1990s and 2000s counterfeits of Globus International releases, the printed Globus logo, address, and the rest of the typography are crisp. (See a blurry example of a random Globus International (2) bootleg release for comparison.)

November 2, 2017
Since this 1992 pressing with silver labels obviously causes major confusion amongst avid collectors regarding its legal status, I have contacted Karel Havelka, the founder and owner of Globus International. Here is an excerpt from his reply:

* "Dělali jsme 2 verze labelů. Černý, ale jedno lisování i se stříbrnými labely. Lisovali jsme dle licence celý rok 92 a část roku 93, podle potřeby."

* "We made 2 versions of the labels. Black, but one press run also with silver labels. We pressed according to the license throughout the year 92 and part of the year 93, just as needed."

So, this very version is 100% legit. See images, and also compare them carefully to the subsequent counterfeits pressed in late 1990s and early 2000s. The difference in appearance is obvious at first glance, especially the blurry sleeve replica of the latter.
