Notes

This is the FIRST pressing of the soundtrack album to the film of the same name featuring 23 tracks.

Not all tracks from the film are on the album and not all the tracks on the album were featured in the final released version of the film either!

The track listing on the inner sleeve is correct although 'No one is Innocent' is called 'Cosh The Driver', 'Friggin' In The Riggin' is listed as 'The Good Ship Venus' and 'C'mon Everybody' is written as 'Come On Everybody'.

Also the tracks on the sleeve are not listed in the correct order, it just states 'includes' and is missing 'Who Killed Bambi' & 'Rock Around The Clock'.

The timing of 6 minutes 20 is the total time for tracks A3 and A4.

This sleeve has RED text along the spine.

Some version 1 sleeves included version 2 discs as well as an amended track list paper insert and, in some cases, stickers too including a RARE star shaped sticker which incorrectly states '20 New Tracks' instead of 21.
However, just to confuse matters the LP on which matrix/runout Variant 2 is based contains the original version 1 discs and the paper insert!
