Notes

Initially released in the UK by the Tania Music label.

This version is the first US pressing of this release. Side A, "Love Money" is purportedly one of the first UK rap songs and was influenced by the Sugarhill Gang's 1979 release, "Rapper's Delight."

According to Tony Williams' recollection in a 2014 interview, "Love Money" was never licensed to Siamese Records to re-release the track in the US.

Dominique Zgarka, co-founder of Siamese Records, told Billboard magazine in 1981 that the label initially released approximately 10,000 copies of this record.
