Aspects Of The Sensual World - U.S. CD EP Release

This five track EP was released in the USA only through Columbia Records. I do remember when I bought this in 1990 it had a large black sticker on the front of the packaging, but I unfortunately never saved it. It wasn't anything spectacular though, so no great loss.

The main insert is a single one-sided page. The opposite side is totally blank, so I never bothered to scan that in.

There are also two interesting things about this release:

The first is the listing for Be Kind To My Mistakes. The information on the CD and the back insert misleads you into believing that this is the Castaway version - it's not. This is the same edited and downright butchered version you find on any other release out there. The only releases that have the Castaway version are the original soundtrack and the German 7" promo single for the song.

The second interesting thing is on the back insert. If you take a look at the barcode area, you'll see a large hole has been punched out. This is not a deletion hole or a promo punched hole. This can be found on a lot of pressed copies. Not all of them, but a lot. It means nothing. I've often seen people trying to sell this as a promo copy because of the hole, so don't be fooled by it.
