Here we have several CD releases of the ep "Politics of Pressure." Of course, this features the standout track for today: "Funkahdafi." (Here is a link to a rare Re:Boot version from the Compact Tour: http://target242.com/home.html
First is the RRE Version, available in both "slimline" and 3 inch mini disc formats. Both have the catalogue number: MK 4 CD.

The stateside Wax Trax version uses the same artwork, although the coloring is somewhat different in that more brown tones are used. In addition, the title for "No Shuffle" is absent from the sleeve. It would appear that it was cut off in final designs, but I am only guessing. The Wax Trax version offers additional artwork in the jewel case insert, which is also seen on the vinyl artwork. The foldout is an advertisement for the Wax Trax mail order catalogue.
The Wax Trax disc is also slightly different in that it offers an open black box surrounding the track names. Both american and european releases have the same material.
The Wax Trax version has the catalogue number: Wax CD 014

Once again, lest Front 242 be accused of siding with a particular faction or regime, they only sample the media and present it "Front" and center..."It's Up To You, To Decide..."
