The nicely silkscreened cd's are built into the front and back cover
of a 10" book. The covers are thick chipboard with a blue and orange
Chris Bigg scibble on the front and a cryptic number thing on the
back (33 and 45 rpms, 15 and 300/500). The first half of the book has
a short story about the development of 4AD along with various v23
photos. The second half of the book gives each of the bands on disc 2
two pages and a very short description. Also, the book has a shiny
gold 4AD logo stuck on the front and the whole thing is bound with
binding tape. At first, it looked like it was taped back together,
but after closer examination, it is part of the design. A t-shirt
came with the package. It's grey with the blue and orange design and
the number thing. The shirt is 25% polyester! Limited edition of 3000
copies. 2500 were shipped til the USA as a promo item for Warner
Brothers and US retailers. Also released in Taiwan as «The Sounds of
4AD», which might be a bootleg. «A Thousand Stars Burst Open» plays
as a part of the last track and not listed on the cover.

This live album was recorded at the press launch for the «Cobalt
Blue» album at The Aquarium, London Zoo on 21st May 1992. It was
taped by Michael, as he always does with his rare solo performances,
with no intention of releasing it. But once all parties heard the
recording, it was agreed that it deserved a far wider audience than
the original gathering of media and friends. To this end, it has been
made avalable in a limited edition. Mastered by Tony Cousins. Sleeve by Vaughan Oliver, Chris Bigg, Simon Larbalestier,
