This is a hard to find release of Organisation with most notable difference on the track listing as in side B there is "Messages" instead of "The Misunderstanding". Furthermore the album's title is in blue color and the band's name in pink.

Very bad quality. The discs of this release are full of bubbles in the polycarbonate and holes in the foil. When released, it was not possible to play these ones on every CD-player.

Is it true that there was no US pressing of this album until 1987?
