Alien Soundtrack Notes: On this pressing spelling is different for Pygmies in Zee Dark, but they spelled ST37 as "ST S7".   Helios is credited as co-producer..

Half Machine notes: On this pressing Abstract Nympho is spelled correctly  and Helios is credited as co-producer.

Cleopatra's re-release is substantially different than the original Box.  Some of the tracks are missing from the original albums and other material is added.  One of these days I'll note the differences...
