Many mistakes printed:

track 13 is not on the "Close to me" 12" but on the UK '85 "Half an Octopus" 10"/ US '86 "Quadpus" 12"
track 16 "2 Late" misspelled "Late"
Different title on sleeve/CD:

- "Plastic Passion", B-Side of Boys Don't Cry 7" 1979
- all the 1982/83 B-Sides featured on "Japanese Whispers"
- all the 1987 B-Sides
