  • Less Than Zero has a slightly different mix to the LP version.(but initial copies only.Etched in the runoff is "LYN-7473")
  • Radio Sweetheart, Costello's first professional recording, was left off the album due to it having a different sound - it was the only track to prominently feature an acoustic guitar.
