About the music:
1.3, 1.5, 1.6, 1.12, 1.13, 2.2, 2.12 and 2.13 are not the full length versions; they are edited for some time, probably in order to retain the format and get 14 tracks on a CD.

2.11 is the 12" version.

About the credits:
1.1: preceding subtitle not specified on release.
1.6: François L'Herbier usually not credited as a songwriter; he mixed the song (together with Michel Daigle).

2.1: songwriter on release miscredited as "SE.Jackson".
2.13:
on back cover: "Remember Me/Ain't No Mountain High Enough";
in inlay booklet: "Remember Me/ Ain't No Mountain High Enough" (with space following /).
