http://www.dragnetrecordsleeds.co.uk/ekmps/shops/8ae2dc/images/mortal-sin-face-of-despair-12-promo-only-release-476-p.jpg

In my database this is filed as Promo edition for zines and alike. Furthermore this came out early 1989 (and not 1988 as M-A is saying), so only 1-3 months before the main release. The playlength is exactly the same as on the regular release (see list below), so I doubt that there is any other mix or mastering.

Hence I believe this was just a hasty limited edition made for promotional purposes only, so nothing to die for.
I wouldn´t expect too much from it except some additional vinyl noise. ;)

Comparing playlenght of Promo vs. regular Edition:
01.  I am immortal  (04:42) → 01.  I am immortal  (04:42)
02.  For richer, for poorer  (04:45) → 04.  For richer for poorer  (04:45)
03.  Martyrs of Eternity  (05:11) → 05.  Martyrs of Eternity  (05:11)
04.  Voyage of Disturbed  (05:03) → 02.  Voyage of the Disturbed  (05:03)

Imo the remastered 2007 reissue of "Face of Despair" should be more interesting for a die-hard fan, as I figured 3 previously unreleased demo tracks on there:
11.  Access denied (Demo Version)  (04:30) → released on <Mortal Sin [AUS] — 1991 — Rebellious Youth — 02 — Access denied>
12.  Violation of your Privacy (Demo Version)  (04:32) → released on <Mortal Sin [AUS] — 1997 — Revolution of the Mind — 06 — Violation of your Privacy>
13.  King of Avarice (Demo Version)  (06:00) → afaik an unreleased Song(?)

Hope this helps!

Thanks for infos & corrections! Yeah, you helped me a lot. I'm not a big enough fan of this group to hardly need this item. If tracks are the same I'll hang on without it. (wink)
