OTHER NOTES
This promotional press kit was released in an box which was 8.5" x 11" x 1".  The box opens with velcro tabs, and inside contains several items:
  • Solicitation VHS Video
  • Solicitation Cassette
  • 4 Page Brochure with Band History and Photos
  • 5 Page Island Records Marketing Plan
  • The inside cover of the box has a short text piece and the album logo
It was released in advance of the album, and contained a cassette sampler which featured edits of various tracks which would appear on the album.  Upon listening it becomes apparant that the versions of One and Mysterious Ways are not edits of the final album versions, but are likely edits of an earlier studio version.

It is interesting to note that at the time of the release of this kit, Until the End of the World was still being planned as a single from the album.
