  • The lyrics in the second verse of the opening track
First And Last And Always were changed from
"Seems like twenty-five years of ever after, ever more more more" to
"Seems like twenty-six years of ever after, ever more more more"
as Andrew Eldritch had seen his 26th birthday on May 15th 1985 two days before the gig.
  • The same recording was later used for the Opus Dei 2LP and CD bootleg as well.
  • Black vinyls, black labels indicating the side of the record(s): A, B, C, D
