Label: Retro Music - Catalog #: 4016 - UPC: 076119401625 - Format: 2CD
Note:
There is a doubt if this is actually the correct cat #/UPC.
All american stores (possibly all from the same source), have a problem with Dexterity, which is placed in disc 1 at last position instead of inside disc 2.
Note that the same ASIN when swapped to .de gives the proper tracklist.
Given *no* store has a sound sample for that track (whenever they have for all other tracks), I suspect some typo somewhere and think the label data is right.
Still, take it with salt.
