    Notes

    Comes with an obi and 4 page liner notes, photos, lyrics and credits insert. This submission is for the white promo label version.

    This album was released first in Japan(East World by Toshiba-EMI) only on September 20, 1979 and billed as IAN GILLAN as opposed to the GILLAN album that came out in the UK in October.
    This was later released in Australia (Interfusion) and New Zealand (Parlophone).
    This release contained alternative tracks to avoid reusing songs already released in these countries on the album Gillan. The track listing was as follows:

    Side 1

    1. "Vengeance" - (3.34) (Gillan/Towns)
    2. "Mr Universe" - (6.14) (Gillan/Towns)
    3. "She Tears Me Down" - (5.08) (Towns)
    4. "Your Sister's On My List" - (4.09) (Gillan/Towns)***

    Side 2

    1. "Street Theatre" - (2.42) (Towns)*
    2. "Roller" - (4.37) (Gillan/Towns)
    3. "Puget Sound" - (4.26) (Gillan/Towns/McCoy/Tormé/Underwood)
    4. "Move With The Times" - (5.00) (Gillan/Towns/McCoy)*
    5. "Sleeping On The Job" - (3.34) (Gillan/Towns)

    Total running time 39.24

    * These appear on the 1993 RPM release Gillan - The Japanese Album, see Gillan (album)
    ***Used as a B-side to the UK Trouble single and appears on the first release of Future Shock on CD as a bonus track
    The album comes with a 4 page black and white booklet with linernotes. Most of them are in Japanese but some are in English. The last ones are signed by Ian Gillan. One page has the lyrics in English.

    Although this album always is credited to the band "Gillan", cover and album credit it to "Ian Gillan". The trademark writing of "Gillan" - which first appears on the UK version of Mr. Universe - does not appear on this record.

    All tracks recorded and mixed at Kingsway Recorders Ltd London.
