Notes

A release often seen as a compilation, but it lies closer to a new album than a compilation. A collection of (dark and sad) love songs from his previous albums, all reworked, redubbed and remixed to form this album.

Lead vocals were replaced on all tracks, except "Been Alone So Long".
All tracks based on the original multitracks, except "Again" and "If I Could", which are based on live K Group performances taken from the Margin Tour.

"MANUFACTURED IN THE UK" (on back and disc).

I recall Peter asserting that all the bonus material had been added to the CD reissues but here things have gone awry. The instrumental mix of "Just Good Friends" would have been something; especially as my copy of the single is horrifically off-centre on side B.
