Annotation

note: there apparently was a later (undated) repress of this edition: https://www.discogs.com/release/4959650 that used the same packaging as this release:
"Although Warner Music Manufacturing Europe is credited on the back cover artwork, it in fact did not press this version. The credit on the back cover is legacy artwork which was not changed for this repress. This repress was pressed by Cinram GmbH, as can be deducted from the matrix number."
