Odd placement of Perfect way on some releases. Vinyl version features the single mix everyone knows and loves and the CD features a pale version that is a little longer. Problem is that is not stated at all weather or not one is an album version or one is a single edit from version to version sadly. Only way to find out is to look at the time stamp (4:30 vs. 4:45). The rest of the songs are the same though in most cases.

Has anyone noticed that on the back cover, the track credits are in some random order that don't relate to either the inner sleeve or the actual record label? Just wondered why this has not been mentioned by anyone and what could be the possible reason for it! Still an AMAZING album BTW! Cheers ;o)

Strange one to repress on vinyl as clean original UK or US pressings can be easily found for around $10.00 or less.

The Alternate Version of 'Perfect Way' is sadly not the one from the original U.K. vinyl, which, in my opinion, is the best one.

Ditto on the black line across the gold lettering.

Many copies I have seen have a scratch right across the gold foil lettering, leaving a black line.

Best pop album of the 80s. No competition, no filler.

In 1985, a boy in my class at secondary school entered a scritti politti competition in Smash Hits magazine (for those not from the UK, it was a weekly pop music magazine for teenagers).

The prize was a one off limited edition metal master cassette of cupid and psyche. It was entirely gold and housed in a burgandy coloured velour drawstring pouch. It looked amazing. Needless to say I've never seen one since, but I remember it well.

Intellectual and perfectly arranged pop /funk music with an effect for addiction to it. There is the undeniable 80's reference (instrumentation, fairlight etc) here, but for me, this is timeless pure fun.
