Notes. On later pressings the sleeve came with a barcode sticker on the rear which had the UK catalogue number VD 2510. However the labels retained their German catalogue numbers. The stripe that runs across the labels is in a slightly different position than on Version 1 with "Stemra" having been replaced with "Gema Stemra Biem". The lettering on the spine is in white.

The album includes the unique version of No One Is Innocent.
