There are two versions of this album issued by Sawiton. Both have the same catalog number, cassette labels and front artwork of the j-card and the difference is color of fonts used in the inlay: Variant 1 (this one) - black fonts Variant 2 (another one) - blue fonts On both edition there is annotation in the inlay (in Polish): "Cassette for sale in the territory of Poland only" but on this version the copyright text on the inner spine is horizontal flipped by mistake.
Stereo Dolby System Bias Normal EQ 120 μSTrack B2 is mis-pressed with a flaw in the audio between 1:50 and 1:53 which sounds like a "wobble". The affected record was repressed and issued separately, a record pressed on a lighter coloured blue vinyl with the new stamper identifiable by matrices of "95945 2B MOVLP 813" in the runout area for side B. It was only issued in this form to the first few people who complained about the mispress. Subsequent issues were handled differently, with users asked to return their albums and receiving a repressed copy of the album by return.
This limited edition on "transparent blue" vinyl is limited to 2,000 individually numbered copies.
Also released on 180 gram black vinyl which is not numbered.
The record comes in a gatefold sleeve with two plain black inner sleeves. A sticker affixed to the polythene cover reads: "Music On Vinyl®. Faith No More "Angel Dust. Limited edition blue vinyl. Individually numbered. Includes hidden bonus track "Easy". 180 gram audiophile vinyl. www.musiconvinyl.com MOVLP813".
Track D2.2 (Easy) is not listed on the sleeve tracklist or the record face labels. It appears after several seconds of silence following track D2.1 (Midnight Cowboy).
The version of "Easy" used is not the version typically used on London Records/European copies of Angel Dust. This uses the "cooler version" which was used by Reprise Records and Liberation in the US and Australia. The typical European version of the track does not have synth-strings instrumentation and includes a vocal introduction "this one's for all the ladies in the house...". The cooler version used here was previously used once in Europe, for a special edition German single
The record is numbered at the bottom left of the rear sleeve.
