℗ & © 2012 Cherry Red records Ltd.

On spines (no "The"): Blow Monkeys

Manufactured in EEC.

All tracks are written as on release.

For players with CD+Text:
1-2 is called: Wild Flower
1-4 is called: Fat Cat Belusha
1-16 is called: Atomic Lullaby (Extended 12" Mix)*

*1-16 isn't actually extended, as such a mix does not exist. It's almost identical to the album version. The most widely available version of this song, which is used on every Blow Monkeys compilation (except for the 2xCD "Digging Your Scene: The Best Of The Blow Monkeys" on Music Club Deluxe, which uses the album version), is the 7" edit, which runs approx. 1:30 shorter than the album version. This edited version does not appear here.

All tracks were remastered from the original tapes. Dr Robert was highly involved in this project. 1-11 to 1-15, 1-17 & 2-14 to 2-16 are previously released singles b-sides; 1-17 & 2-14 to 2-16 are making their first CD appearance here; 2-1 is a previously unheard song; 2-1 to 2-13 are previously unissued.

This is the first European CD release to utilize the original vinyl's cover art, but a Japanese remastered reissue in a mini-LP replica sleeve was the first CD issue to use it.

1-11: B-side to "Go Public" – RCA 398, 1984
1-12: B-side to "Atomic Lullaby" – RCA 444, 1984

Here's what the gentleman who compiled this was kind enough to clarify on As the project's compiler, I felt duty-bound to add a comment or two. Some of the confusion surrounding the track listings stemmed from some problems with how tracks were originally identified. Hopefully, we got it (nearly!) right...

Atomic Lullaby: you're right, the only difference between 12" and album is the fade at the start. For completeness, we included both. The "Extended" bit was a mistake which may have stemmed from the original vinyl (or was my error!), presumably because it was extended compared with the 7". We didn't think adding the 7" edit would add much.
