Thank God for the vinyl issue in the box set. Mine was bought back in the day on release date and is now in atoms because it was played so much
Although nearly 99% of this release is already available (though hard to avail of), I'm buying it for the LP, Packaging and, of course, because it's Alphaville. Plus, there was a 2018 remastered Reissue of FY released last year, with 2 bonus tracks

I would be surprised if this was an official release. The cover looks awful.

Certainly not remastered from the master tapes for sure.

I would leave it up to Marian if the opinion on the cover. There are many covers that are around for remasters. So where will I find out if the tracks are remastered? If it's a bootleg, it certainly sounds fine.

Now I ordered my copy,looking forward to it,mostly the DVD and CD 2 with the Singleversions and the great
B-sides.

If there is something I would love to have on this Album it would be singleversions of the great;A victory of love
and Fallen angel
