  • All tracks are composed by EC, except where otherwise stated.
  • The times for CD tracks are taken from the CD player display, while for vinyl it is taken from the label or cover. In the case of records on the Stiff label these times are to be taken with a pinch of salt! (e.g: On A02 "Alison" is over 3 mins. long and not 2:00 as stated on label).

Initial copies (15,000) contain an extra CD/LP/CAS of live tracks from 1986 NYC Broadway shows. After initial stocks ran out it was replaced by a single CD/LP/CAS version with just the extended play tracks.
The initial releases of the cassette version has the original album on side 1 and the bonus and live tracks on side 2.
The gold disc version sounds a little better than the normal re-release but otherwise is identical (including the minor faults in "Poisoned Rose", "I'll Wear It Proudly" and "Jack Of All Parades". And even the band of silence after "Sleep Of The Just" is still missing).
This release was first available at the London Meltdown festival (27-Jun-95) before its official release date of 25-July.
The 2xCD version was also packaged together with the 2xCD version of Blood & Chocolate (re-release) as a special limited edition promo 4xCD pack.

This is a recording of a live concert in London, 1995-05-17.
Maybe 'promo' is the wrong word to describe this because Warners call it a 'CD-Reference' disc, and I wouldn't have thought that it would have been distributed as widely as a normal promo.

"CS" produced by Stepaside Productions.
"BK" recorded & mixed by Dave Zamitt.
This German release contains correct 'Cashbox Version' of "Complicated Shadows".
Here are a few tips to help distinguish this version from the UK version: "The packaging of both versions is VERY similar. The only difference on the sleeve are the words "LC 0392 WE C795" which are printed in small black letters on the back, under the listing of the track "Complicated Shadows", and to the right of "Licensed by GEMA". Other than this the sleeves are identical. Don't be mislead by the "Made in Germany" text at the very bottom of the sleeve on the back - both versions say this. If you are able to examine the CD intself then there are a couple of differences. Most noticable is that the yellow & blue picture on the CD goes right up to the centre hole on the UK version, while on the German copy the centre piece of plastic (about 1 1/2" in diameter) is clear. This is slightly confusing because the other 3 UK maxis in the set have this clear centre piece as well. The UK CD is pressed by DISCTRONICS, and has this text written around the inner ring on the silver side of the disc. The German version has "WME" & "IPPI" instead."
