Not noted on the sleeve, this record also contains an acapella vocoder only version of "Behind The Mask" after the remixed version of the track on side B. This is exclusive to this pressing.

The megamix on side A is different to the CD version released in 1990.

It should be noted that the CD version of the Mega Mix is longer than the vinyl version - it has an extended intro and a longer "Simoon" coda. The vinyl version has those samples in the bonus groove, something that the CD does not. There is also a promotional 7" which needs to be listed, with an edit of the Behind The Mask remix and a cut-up of the Mega Mix.
