I just received a Vol 2 1511 with the vol 1 1510 record in the sleeve and jacket. Is this a normal occurrence for this release?

There is a Japan re-issue in 201, with exactly same Tracklist as the 1989's Volume 2, but is BLUE in colour, and is named "Genius of modern music volume three: 5th & final session on blue note" I accidentally find it in used CD store (mine with Rental CD label), and find that there is not much discussion on this creepy VOLUME THREE.

I've had two copies of this, both slightly warped. Very tight shrink-wrap.
