Notes:
Initially released on Do It Records in 1979, this album was later re-issued in 1983 with an edited track list, incorporating tracks from the Do It singles "Zerox" and "Cartrouble".

From the liner of the 1983 reissue:
"I wrote the songs on this album between 1976 and 1979. They represent the live repertoire of Adam & The Ants as they then were. When control of the master tapes reverted to me I took the opportunity with the help of Marco to do justice to the work by incorporating the first two singles, and making the album widely available to our audience."

The album was reissued again in 1994 as a CD, incorporating all tracks from both versions of the album, and yet again in 2004, as a remastered collection of all output from the Do It years.

The plan was to follow up with 2,000 black vinyl. This has seemingly been scrapped.Reported that there were quality issues but potentially due to sales being lower than expected of the white vinyl. Who can say?

This C.D. features the 1982-released (shorter: 6.36 vs. 6.52) remix of Cartrouble parts 1&2 in place of the original album version. The version of Kick! is the same as on the B-side of the Cartrouble part 2 7".

It's a card outer sleeve over a standard jewel case rather than a gatefold.

Pretty sure the "FE" in the cat# should be "PE"
