Album Notes By dltourhistory

A reissue of the classic 1987 studio album 'Hysteria', the most successful album of the band's career. A second disc was included with many of the B Sides from the album's seven singles released during 1987 to 1989.

The 2CD's came in a fold-out digipak inside a clear slipcase (which has the white deluxe edition logo/sticker attached) + 30-page booklet. The original B Sides were included on disc one and two plus 'Elected' from the 'Adrenalize' b sides. The Lunar Mix of 'Rocket' is the longest version found on the 'Love Bites' CD single/'Rocket' 12" and listed as the Extended Version on the Canadian CD/12"/CASS EP.

All extras were previously available on CD but 'Tear It Down' was only available on CD on the very hard to find 'Animal' UK CD single/Video CD. Sadly the 'Animal' Extended Version is not the original one. They have cut off the end after the false fade. The track should have gone on to 4:55 but cuts out at 4:40. So this version is still only available on CD on the orignal CD/vinyl singles.
