Detail front cover


Additional comments Carton case which holds the normal jewel case (which has the same front and back cover as the standard edition). Besides the normal booklet with the specially-written sleeve notes by Charlie Gillettt, this French limited edition also contains an extra 6 page booklet with additional concert photos. The booklet mentions that Tunnel of love was taken from the Old Grey Whistle Test, London, UK, 31st January 1981. That is actually incorrect. The live version on the CD was recorded at the Rockpop festival at the Westfahlenhalle, Dortmund, Germany, 19th December 1980. You can also clearly hear Mark saying Danke schön! at the start of the song. The Old Grey Wistle Test also recorded a live version from Tunnel of love, but that one was recorded on 29th November 1980. All in all, a strange error for an official booklet.
