Beggars Banquet had custom labels produced for the album Dance, But, it didn't sell as well as expected.
Beggars were stuck with an abundance of these labels unused. So, to cut their losses, they used the excess for I, Assassin.
Once they were exhausted, a small batch were printed with 'Dance' omitted.

The synth funk of Dance taken to the next level, raw and refined, this album is as perfect as it gets, to dare is to do, the self indulgence of the title track sums it up in a nutshell, a raw Linn Drum machine playing to the room, so simple, so pure, but total genius!
