US pressing includes 19-3/4 x 15" monochrome poster w/ lyrics and credits.
John L. Cyborg credited for "Data Memory" on the poster.  Some posters printed with magenta ink, others with black.

Note: Helios was not credited on the Italian record for You've Been Duplicated.  Abtract Nympho mis-spelled on Italian pressing as Abstract Nymphd.

The original Siren pressings had a sticker on the shrink wrap showing the names of the songs:

Note that there have been at least two different molds made for the Siren pressing.   It is unknown at this point whether they were mastered differently or not, although it is reported that the "S-6420" pressing was done on heavier vinyl than the "L-1736" version.
