The percussion loop on tracks 3/4 is the "belly break" sampled from "Take Me To The Mardi Gras" by Bob James.

The group were forced to change their name due to the outbreak of the Gulf War in 1991. They were briefly known as "Massive", and it is that name which features on the cover of this single.

Just a few first radio DJ copies which held the original name were printed and must immediately send back to destroy them.
Only a rare few radio DJ's didn't send it back, and so the misprint Massive Attack - Unfinished Sympathy is a very rare item nowadays.

One of the greatest chillout tracks! Still loved 'Massive'ly to this day by many and a great emotional timeless piece of electronic music :)
