GENERAL NOTES

SHORT FACTS

Both Sides on the CD was released by the three record labels:

  • Virgin Records (UK) (CD Reference: UK: CDV 2800 7243 8 39232 2 9)

The CD has been released in the UK, and Worldwide in November, 1993. The CD, in the United States, has never been released with long box packaging.

Prior to the album releases, record companies released a few promotional CDs that were available for use by the Radio stations and for the reviewers. For more information, please see this entry.


PLEASE NOTE:

Further releases of this album after year 1999 are not presented. My collection of this album ends on the late 1990s releases.

PLEASE NOTE 2:

Normally I don't collect fake CDs and I am absolutely against it, however, couple of years ago I came across "Both Sides" Bulgarian fake CD that was sold in the shop as a legitimate release. The disc has a printed Phil's face on it. It's a very interested release and I have decided to added it to my website.


SINGLES

Both Sides was also promoted by the CD and vinyl record singles. Originally the album was released to the market on the CD, vinyl record and the music cassette. For more information about the CD single releases, please click here.
