GENERAL NOTES

SHORT FACTS

Serious Hits...Live! on the CD was released by the three record labels:

  • Virgin Records (UK) (CD Reference: UK: PCCD1)
  • Atlantic (USA, Canada) (CD Reference: U.S: 82157-2, Canada: CD 82157)
  • Warner/Atlantic (WEA) (rest of The World) (CD Reference: 9031-72550-2)

The CD has been released in the UK, and Worldwide in November, 1990, exactly one year after the ...But Seriously album. The CD was recorded over one entire concert. It was recorded during the Seriously, Live! World Tour.

Special promotional box sets were available for purchase in the United States and Europe. For more information, please click here.
As far as I know, In the United States the CD has also been issued in a CD long box packaging. For more information, please click here.

WEA, and Virgin records has released the CD with slipcase cover. Although, normal CD releases (without the slipcase) were also available on the market for the lower price. In Japan the CD has been issued four times since 1990. Early Japanese CDs were released with slipcase cover and without an OBI strip.

The CD has never been remastered since first release. Original mastering was distributed with later releases.


PLEASE NOTE:

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


SINGLES

Serious Hits...Live! 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
