Remastered album with disappointing artwork but including the track Promise!
All songs composed and arranged by David Sylvian.
Artwork is a brownish coloured 8 page variant of the original. Doesn’t look impressive though compared to the original. Shame what they do to Vaughan’s work.
It looks low-priced and this re-issue series is low-priced! Package is a standard jewel case.
In the booklet, the lyrics of Orpheus are published.
