Additional info
Released on 9/9/99, the book "Secrets Of My Kingdom" was supposed to have been released by Earache Records, accompanying a limited edition gold disc version of the CD, but for reasons unknown, that version was released summer 2001, months prior to "The Smell Of Rain".

The LP version was a 3-sided gatefold with a foldout 12" lyrics sheet. The initial plan was a huge poster, but that idea was dropped by the label. Word was that it would be included in a reprint of the LP, but that reprint never happened. The 4th side was etched.
