This is a CD "reissue" that was released in Japan in August 2003.  Word has it that it was produced by the same person who prepared Vigotone's 2000 & 2001 Japanese CD releases.

It doesn't include the original box or booklet, but it has very high-quality miniature reproductions of Wings' 20-page "UK Tour 1979" program, a ticket from the aborted 1980 Japan tour (complete with perforations!), and the Fall '79 Japanese ticket order form.  These bonus items really enhance this release and the small tour program really is cool to have!  (The program has perfectly legible text.  It's an excellent reproduction!)

The packaging uses the original's box art, not the inner packaging.  The jewel case inserts are printed on a slightly textured paper stock, unlike the glossy paper stock Vigotone used for the original.  The text on the front and back covers appears slightly "fuzzy", with the exception of the catalog number, Vigotone logo, compact disc logo, and the copyright notice which are sharp and clear.  The printing on the spine is also very sharp and clear.

Unlike the 2000 - 2001 Japanese CD releases, this was obviously not authorized.  But, is does include real CDs that closely resemble the ones released in Japan in 2000 & 2001.  Since Vigotone never released this on real CD (only CDR), this one it a pretty cool release to have.

The track times are a bit different than the Vigotone CDRs, so it's possible that this was remastered.

So, to conclude, this is not some cheap knock-off with poor graphics and packaging.  The people who prepared this one did Vigotone proud!
