Brazilian release with little information on the pressing, pressed after 2003.

This is a very peculiar release with the following errors:

• The TOC of this release consists in only 10 tracks (not the original 11), being that track 3 and 4 were glass mastered as one track.
• The CD label uses the its logo printing from the 1990 release: The matrix and back cover is clearly from at least more than a decade later, as Batch ID codes had begun to be printed in the release only after mid-2003.
• PolyGram has nothing to do with this release, and it only appear because of the CD label misprint.
• The CD label misprint maintains the old spelling error for track 3, as "An Cat Bubh".

Timing of tracks not stated in anywhere in the release - taken from computer software.
The audio source is from the original master, not the 2008 remastered version.
