Just Nothing Short of Total War as a limited edition (3000 numbered copies for the british ver, 1500 for the American ver) boxed set of 10 7" singles in plain Blast First sleeves . The tracklist is shuffled, and there are several tracks not on the LP or CD. I am still after the British release of this, so email me if you want to sell your copy (or just provide me with a complete tracklist and scans of the cover).

The US version has multi-colored foil on the cover (this did not scan in at all well), whereas all the British versions I've seen have red foil. US versions also have small-hole 7"s, whereas the British version has jukebox-style 7"s. The US version also states "BLAST FIRST US" on the front. Easy to spot, no?
