Edition with different (original) tracklist and artwork

The first version of the LP was rush released, but Jimme and the band then persuaded the label to let them record, more cheaply, three new songs ("The Beat Escape", "The Chase" and "Get Civilised") which were more upbeat, commercial and funky! Jimme co-produced these with Chris Porter. The label, feeling more hopeful, put out a new, finished version of the album with these songs included.

Instead "Disorient Express", "Bohemian Dance", "Coffee And Screams" and "Madame X / Tickled To Death" were dropped.
