Notes

  • Etched in the UK 7" runoff for side A is "Elvis Joins the FBI" & "Just Good Friends Rock". Side B contains "Elvis is King".
  • A few copies of the UK 7" had the A-side pressed on white vinyl while the B-side was still black!
  • The "US version" of Alison adds synth-strings, chorus and echo.
