Acoustic Hits :
recorded 13th August 2001 @ Olympic Sudios, London
Writing credits same as main disc.

The copyright in this sound recording is owned by Fiction Records and licensed exclusively to Polydor Ltd. (UK), a Universal Music Company. Made in EU. ℗ 2001 Fiction Records Ltd. © 2001 Fiction Records Ltd.
www.thecure.com

8 pages booklet with titles & credits & 2 sided Cure's discography colour card insert.
The FIXCL32 catalog number appears on spine only.
Released trough different countries with various stickers, all stating "Edition Limitée" (France) or "Limited Edition" (Germany & EU).

Little typo on back sleeve at the end of first credits line :
The copyright in this sound recording is owned by Fiction Records and licensed "exclusivley"... (instead of "exclusively").
Strangely, this similar EU release shows a different typo on the same word (!).
Also, it has an alternate Polydor cat# & a different barcode ending with "3".
