Sound quality: Digitally remastered from the original master tapes.
Total running time: 8:48 minutes

This is identical in its contents and packaging to the "From Memphis To Venice" CD except for the title. The CD itself is no different as the title is not mentioned on either and no catalog numbers were assigned.

Apparently, the change in the titles is in reference to BMG / RCA executive meetings held at the locations mentioned.
