Annotation

The Definitive Remastered Edition.

Contains 16-page booklet including rare photos, vintage memorabilia, detailed liner notes and more.

"Manhattan Towes Hotel Ballroom" is given as the recording location for the debut album. "Towes" is probably a typo as I found nothing on Google, instead "Manhattan Towers" is used.
