While the CD and vinyl editions of "acr:set" are almost identical, "Dirty Boy" appears on the CD in extended form and on the vinyl in a shorter radio edit form, noted as "Dirty Boy" on the vinyl labels and inner sleeves but also "Dirty Boy (featuring Barry Adamson)" on the back cover and inner sleeves.  The MP3/FLAC downloads that came with the vinyl do not include the shorter version but instead, the extended.  Versions given to music steaming services such as Apple or Spotify use the short version as well, which is apparently called "Dirty Boy (Radio Edit)", as that's how it was noted when it first appeared on [r=12663982.

Also, "Mickey Way" is correctly listed on the vinyl label as being the standard version of the track as it first appeared on [r=33256 but it is incorrectly listed on the inner sleeve and back cover of the album as being the 12" version, which it isn't.  The same applies to the download FLAC/MP3 versions for that album, which are also the same version that appears on [r=33256.

Disc one vinyl colour is a dark opaque green while the second disc is greyish silver with wisps of white throughout.
