Only LTM reissue contains three singles as specified. The original one doesn't.

Yeah I only just discovered them - bought Swimming on secondhand vinyl only a couple of weeks ago - great album. I'm just about to order the LTM reissue plus the rarities disc along with what sounds like a great vintage Section 25 DVD.
