This is an interesting promotional release.

Rather than simply containing interviews and excerpts of songs, this disc was created using "Virtual Audio" technology. The idea behind virtual audio was to give the listener the feeling that they were in a 3-Dimensional space.

Back around 1994, this particular disc was being discussed in online news groups because of the startling effects. Between interview and song snippets, the narrator walks around the listener, whispers behind them and so on. The part that had everyone chatting though was the knock at the door. While listening to this disc with your eyes closed, you'll hear a knock at your door. It's only when you go to the door and open it that you'll realise that the knock only exists in virtual audio on the disc! The realism of that single effect worth getting this disc for.

Although the music and interviews will only be of interest to Babble and Thompson Twins fans, the virtual audio will be a conversation piece for any collector of rare promotional items.
