Although made in France (264 prefix on catalogue number), the cassette is also stamped with the German mechanical rights organisation – GEMA as they were intended for Europe wide distribution. Different languages are used on the cassette and the French price code is on the rear of the cover (PM 464). The ‘sticker’ on the front cover is part of the printing and not stuck on. There is a typo on Side 2 of the cassette Oddity becomes ODDYTY. Like their cd and LP counterparts the sleeve has been enhanced with photographs and lyrics etc. White ink printed directly onto clear shell with insert.
The track sequence has been slightly adjusted from the LP format so that track 1 from side 2 ‘Janine’ has been added as the last track on side 1 to give room for the bonus tracks: ‘Conversation Piece’, Memory Of A Free Festival Part 1 & Memory Of A Free Festival Part 2. ‘Don’t Sit Down’ has been included on side 1.
