I was in a charity shop some years ago and there was a whole box of the 7" free single. Just the single - not the album - and multiple copies. I bought a few.... but what was the point? What could I possibly do with so many? I always thought it was an odd thing to find in a chazzer. (2014 update - I have sold all my spares).

I've read a complaint on Amazon.com about the "terrible remastering". Can anyone confirm this? And is there an audible difference between the 1994 remastering (with bonus tracks, which I own and sounds fine, btw) and the one from 2006?

"Early copies include bonus 7" (PSR 444) with four (at that time) untitled tracks." Should this be four unreleased tracks? The copy of the 7" we have has the titles on the rear?

Often classed as a punk or new wave album, this is both of those but much, much more. While some thrash punk elements from Pink Flag are retained in 2 People in a Room, the rest is post-punk at its finest. "Map Ref 41N 93W" is a classic pop song, catchy and quirky, while "I Should Have Known Better" is one of the finest bitter love songs ever written, with superbly poignant and very pointed lyrics sung with true emotion evident. This album is one of the true classics and influenced thousands of subsequent pieces of music. Timeless and breathtaking.
