With the three different editions all tracks can be found on both CD and DVD, except The Crystal Returns, which is not on any DVD.

The JAPANESE EDITION was limited to 500 coipies, including an exclusive 80 page booklet.

The Japanese promoters granted Schulze the most convenient service, re-building his entire live equipment in Japan, so that not much gear has to be transported the long way. Offering an electric guitar on stage, Schulze could not resist to lap-play it a little in the beginning of Sequencers Are Beautiful.

Both concerts were filmed by James L. Frachon.

The cover design is by Hayato Nobuoka, the artwork by Uwe Doms. The JAPANESE EDITION came in a dark red cardboard box, the EUROPEAN EDITION had a metallic red golden cover, the AMERICAN EDITION a metallic blue silver cover.
