Includes 28 page booklet.

Mono mix released in 1993 by BGO and quickly replaced with stereo mix.

How to spot the mono BGO version over the stereo:
The mono had no sticker on the jewel case, the case has a clear edge through which the gold coloring of the inside back cover is visible. The front cover (CD booklet) and the back cover of the CDs are identical - same product code, same BGOCD194, same "Remastered by Sound Recording Technology, Cambridge 1993." When you lift out the CD, the inside back of the mono (gold color) has a small picture of Donovan in the middle (same head shot from the cover of the US Wear Your Love Like Heaven LP, I believe) and some illustrations of children and flowers.

The stereo version also has a clear jewel case (no black border), the inside back cover is white in color and has an advertisement for "Other Donovan releases avilable on BGO Records . . . " and shows the covers of Sunshine Superman and Donovan in Concert. My jewel case for the stereo has the silver sticker "Remastered from original master tapes/additional sleeve notes/faithfully restored artwork." The booklets are identical in both.

The CD for the mono version has a dark ring around the periphery of the CD, inside the silver outside ring, and the print is darker than on the stereo. On the inside ring of the CD is: on the mono, "disctronics S BGCD 194" while on the stereo is "TOC 25611 BGOCD 194." It would make sense if the "S" were on the stereo but it ain't.
