Notes

℗ 1980 Virgin Records Limited

Vinyl: Made in Germany
Sleeve: Printed in Western Germany by Mohndruck Graphische Betriebe GmbH, Gütersloh

Recorded at Air Studios and The Townhouse Studios, London.

First edition pressing with track A3 incorrectly printed with 'Some Kind Of Fool' on the back of the sleeve. The vinyl label, track A3 is listed as & plays 'Burning Bridges'. David Sylvian had decided to replace 'Some Kind Of Fool' with 'Burning Bridges' even though some initial sleeves had already been printed.

This pressing is similar to another released in Germany, which uses the same Catalogue # 202 968, 202 968-320. However, this pressing has a slightly different Matrix # and Rights Society.
