Well Kept Secret (Japanese, bonus tracks)

26 Aug 1998
The Bottom Line

Expanded with the single

Summer 1998 this rarity was issued in Japan. It is in fact an expanded remix of John's 1982 album, issued in the Re-Birth Collection.
The two bonus tracks were released separately as a vinyl single back in 1982.

The booklet contains five pages of unreadable sleevenotes, completed 27 June 1998, but also the complete lyrics in English and Japanese.
