The EP is very rare; only 100 copies were made.
Amy claimed in a interview in October 2011 that this EP was put together by fans. However, this is not true, as it's featured as part of Evanescence's discography on Bigwig's website, the band's first label before they signed with Wind-up.

- "Give Unto Me" - The original version, later adapted into an instrumental for the Sound Asleep EP.
- "My Immortal" - First recorded demo of the song. Features Amy playing a simplified piano arrangement with vocals.
- "Me & You"  - Speculated to be an outtake, but most likely a result of miscommunication. Most probably "Unknown Title" played at Vino's Bar in May 1999.
These are original concept art images from an unknown source. The front insert is the single image on one side and blank on the other. The back insert is the same way. The disc has the four 'E' designs screened in black on a silver CD-R.
