Limited edition of 300 hand-numbered copies pressed on "light reactive lavender swirl" vinyl and issued in a double black, uncoated heavyweight board sleeve with spot varnish finish. Includes a two-sided insert sheet with full lyrics and album production notes. "Never to be repressed in this style."

Edition numbering appears only on shrink wrap hype sticker. On this sticker, the release as a whole is said to have been "Produced by Danalogue (2)". On the insert sheet, however, only tracks A2-B3 are said to have been "Produced by Dan Leavers". No track-level production credit is given for A > LABEL RESPONSE: Yep we didn't put the production credit on the intro tune but it was indeed still produced by Danalogue

Label name appears simply as "Purple City" on sleeve back and center labels (the word "Soufflé" appears nowhere on this release).
© & ℗ Purple City 2020. > LABEL RESPONSE: We re-branded from Purple City Soufflé to Purple City between Ill Conceived and this release. Unfortunately there seems to be no function on Discogs to re-tag our catalogue under the new name (sort it out Discogs) but for clarity our label is now simply called Purple City.
