Prepress by DACD.

This repress restores the original cover art of the first vinyl version released by the band itself in 1988. Booklet's backcover shows the artwork of the other editions, the ones titled "Chemical Exposure".

16-pages booklet with lyrics, photos (including the original one for the alternate cover, without the effects), discography (with tracklists, including demos) until 1992 and liner notes by Steve Di Giorgio.

According to the latter, on the two different cover:

"[...] A few pressings later, finances were raised to produce cassettes to accompany the vinyl that was selling well at this point. But art restrictions limited the cover of the dimensionally different cassette and forced us to abandon the vinyl art work. The new idea was visually over-exposed chemically and the concept coincided with the weird aural-trip outro, Chemical Exposure... thus the reason for different title between vinyl and cassette versions. In 1991 all three versions of vinyl, cassette and CD were rereleased with only the "Chemical Exposure" title."
