- did not chart
- 9000 copies pressed.
- Given away free at London Dominion Christmas shows, the 3 New York shows in January 1979, and when buying the Armed Forces LP at any January 1979 UK concert.
- Also given away as prizes in a NME competition in late 1979. The prize was intended to be a cassette called "Elvis At Home" which contained the original "Honky Tonk Demos", but apparently EC objected. As a result this 7" plus 2 tickets for the Clarendon Ballroom, Hammersmith show (1980-01-18) was the prize.
- Both tracks are Armed Forces outtakes.
