The sleeve incorrectly lists 19 tracks - with Shadowplay as track 15.
Poor sound quality. Some of the songs from Leeds are almost unlistenable at times. This is quite remarkable when there are so many high quality recordings of the Amsterdam concert available. The CD sounds as though it has been copied from a vinyl LP - although no LPs of this concert are this bad.
Copy of Soul Of Heart. These two CDs were clearly pressed from the same master but have different covers and different pictures on the disk.
