When the release was taken over into the Ariola mid-price program around 1985, Category 204 951-320 on the cover rear was stuck over with stickers showing mid-price Category 204 951-270, indicating excess stock copies from the 1st edition.
A new cover rear layout with updated price code and companies was eventually used for the barcoded, DM-cut reissue Music For A New Society in 1987.

Cover with glossy finish.
