Contains the 1987 mix, which the release makes not really clear (ok, copyright says 1987, but otherwise no indication). The 1987 mix is good, but if you're looking for the original, this release will disappoint you. Pressing quality is mediocre at best. Also the bonus tracks on cover are actually not on the record. Not recommended...
