Notes

Track 1-11 is actually the 7" version of "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" and not the 4:58 album version which is listed. Correct time is below.

Track 1-18 "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby" has the track time listed as 4:03 which is incorrect. Correct time is below.

Track 2-9 "Stretch Out And Wait" is not the 2:37 version which was on the B-Side of Shakespeare's Sister. The version here is the one with alternate lyrics which can be found on "The World Won't Listen" Compilation. Correct track time is below.

Track 2-16 "Cemetry Gates" has the track time listed as 3:35 which is incorrect. Correct time is below.

Both CDs are housed in a glossy gate fold digipak with a colour booklet featuring photos of the band at various stages of their career.

A Sticker On The Front Sleeve calls this the "2-CD Deluxe Edition"
