I had a promo version of this album that I bought from either Groucho's in Dundee or by mail order. It was single sided with complete picture sleeve. It included a large poster and possibly a press sheet. Like a fool I sold it around 10 years ago, so I cannot give any more details... But it is out there, somewhere!
