[Front cover]
"The third single by Frankie Goes To Hollywood"

[Sleeve notes - edited]
THE POWER OF LOVE is sung by Holly Johnson, and always will be.
'A kiss is like a homage'
Composed by Frankie Goes To Hollywood 'blameless, bashful'
[…]
Co-ordination ZTT, who admit that in cases like this the details are vague, if not innacurate: but, entirely helpful.
[…]
The second helping of The Power Of Love has been eased helplessly out of the shadow of the dome of pleasure. As well on the first side: The World Is My Oyster.
The second side of this record has been eased helpfully out of the shadow of the dome of pleasure… Welcome To The Pleasuredome (Pleasurefix) and The Only Star In Heaven (Starfix). It's involved but never halved.
[…]
The third single in all its holy glory is number five in Zang Tuum Tumb's priviliged Action Series.
[…]
Dear god, give us often such rascals.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood were introduced to you by ZTT Records of Basing St.
The rest is post-BANG.
And other things.

Yeah, that's really great, same applies to the starfix version of "Only Star in Heaven", which also appears on 'The Art Of 12" '. But unfortunately the "Sex Mix Edit" of RELAX on this compilation is NOT the one from the European RELAX 12" from 1983, it's something completely new. So this one (runtime ~ 8:15) is still only available on vinyl.

Notes:
Track B1 is NOT the known "Pleasurefix" original 12inch version, but an instrumental version of "Welcome To The Pleasuredome", and as such absolutely unique!
