3rd Category only listed on back sleeve in brackets under the 1st Category.Produced for Horn Productions.
A-Side all aboard the remix and additional production pleasure ride for DMC (UK). Engineered at Sarm West.
B-Side remixed for Roll Over Productions, London.

Made in Germany by Warner Music Manufacturing EuropeWhite and orange sticker states:
"Limited Edition White Vinyl - Available for a limited time only while stocks last. Stickered stock only."On CD: "Manufactured By Victor Company Of Japan, LTD. Made In Japan."
On Booklet: "Manufactured by JVC, Japan Printed in Japan"

This is one of the first US releases. It came in a longbox which mentions 'Printed in the U.S.A.' Unlike the later edition Welcome To The Pleasuredome whose disc and inserts were made and printed in the U.S.A., this edition's disc says 'Made in Japan', and the tray inlay says 'Printed in Japan'.
The master index on the back cover is inaccurate; the actual tracks are shown here. The CD mix differs from the LP in the following ways: "Well…" is not listed as a track; "Two Tribes" is the 'Annihilation' 12" mix instead of the 3:22 'for the victims of ravishment' LP version; the B-sides "The Last Voice" and "Happy Hi" are added; and several recordings are omitted: the songs "Ferry (Go)" and "San Jose", the orgasm discussion at the end of "Two Tribes", and the "life goes on day after day…" vocal overdub on "Snatch Of Fury (Stay)".
