Release notes

This CD was released in United States, in 1992, shortly before the official album premiere. The disc was manufactured in the USA by WEA Manufacturing Inc. This is a promotional release that was sent to Radio stations and music reviewers. This CD has never been for sale.

Interestingly, the disc of this promo release is the same as in the official release. The only difference is the artwork. This promotional CD has been issued in a plain white cardboard digipak. On the from "PROMO ONLY" is present on lower right corner. There is no picture or any text present inside the digipak. Rear side of digipak remain plain white. There's nothing on the spine either. Other disc variants might be found with this releases, however, I haven't seen many of this around so I cannot comment.

The catalogue number of this promo is 82452-2. In the official Atlantic release an additional digit was added to the catalogue numbers on artwork.

The CD was manufactured in the United States by WEA plant. Matrix numbers have Mather and Father codes (M1S5). Apart from barcode in the matrix ring, there is no IFPI codes present on disc. MADE IN U.S.A. BY WEA MANUFACTURING INC. is printed on the disc edge.

The CD was distributed only in the United States and it appear to be not an easy to locate, however, there are still some copies around. Bear in mind that this promotional digipak was released to Radio DJ's and music reviewers and may need some searching.
