The main track, A, has no remix name, but is almost identical to the version on the CD Infected that is named (12" Version) - the difference being that the version on this releases has an added pilot radio conversation at the end.
A is noted as "swing wing", and B as "fixed wing".
Durations do not appear on release.
Pressed in 7,500 copies.
This pressing of "Sweet Bird of Truth" was the first single from "Infected", but it's release coincided with the US bombing of Libya where an American pilot was shot down, and CBS were unwilling to release and promote it. It ended up as a low-key release that was deleted on the day of release.
