[1993-10-15; CD; Ryko (USA)]
[1993-__-__; CD; VS MSIEC-1 (Japan) MSI repack of DPAM1]

Produced by Nick Lowe.
This CD was also available as part of the CD box set 2 1/2 Years [DPAMBOX 1] which also contains -Q13, -Q14, & -Q15, with booklet. (Original copies (pre 1996) of the box set had the text 'Elvis Costello' cut out of the lid like a stencil. Later copies do not have the letters cut out.)
The track "Cheap Reward" is an early version of "Lip Service".
The 'Clover' version of "Mystery Dance" here ends differently to the original version that appeared on the MAIT LP. The fade-out ending has been changed to a sudden stop.
This version of "Radio Sweetheart" is a slightly different mix to the original version (B-side of "Less Than Zero" 7"). It does not have the backing vocals singing "Oooooh" at the start of the line "Hope in the eyes..." near the start.
Due to a mastering error 1 1/2 beats are missing from "I'm Not Angry".
