Notes

Erratum:-
Track 15 is not the Visage track "Motivation" but another similarly named track by a (currently) unknown artist.
Taken directly from the autobiography "Blitzed!," by Steve Strange: -
"Motivation (a dance track added in error - definitely not the Visage song!)"

I just solved the origin of mysterious Track 15. Motivation is actually the name of the band and track name is "Are you ready?". Always liked the track, though too funky for Visage. Somehow this misplaced song adds value to the disk, just like mistakes on postage stamps :). Here's the vocal version of the same track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pFCAMT2_9U

"Motivation" sounds like a late 70s/early 80s jazzfunk track. It sounds like Shakatak/Level 42/Kool + Gang with funky slap bass. It is definitely not the Visage instrumental of the same name! I have been unable to determine who the original group is. The sole lyric to the misplaced song actually is "motivation" so the mixup makes a little sense, at least.

The master used for "Der Amboss" sounds like it was taken from the mixed version of "The Singles Collection" as released on cassette and LP, since the segues are noticeable in the intro/outro fades on the cut. The version of "Der Amboss" on the Beat Boy remaster by Cherry pop sources the original master for the song and no cross fades are present.
