2012 Reissue[edit]

Culture Factory USA reissued this album in a limited edition with a replica of the original vinyl packaging on January 24, 2012. The packaging uses thick cardboard stock and the inner sleeve is a replica of the original including lyrics and credits for the original album. The album was remastered from the original mastertapes at 24 bit and then dithered down to a 16 bit CD. The label of the CD is a replica of the period vinyl Island label and is jet black with "grooves" on the label side looking very much like an LP. The edition is limited to 3000 copies worldwide. The CD doesn't have any mastering credits.[6]
