DualDisc versions of the album[edit]

This album was included among a group of fifteen DualDisc releases that were test marketed in Boston and Seattle. The DualDisc has the standard album on one side, and bonus material on the second side.

The DualDisc version was later reissued in a more widely distributed version. The original test market version differs from this common version in both packaging elements and in the design of the back of the inlay card.
