Released in December 1989 as the first release on the Band Of Joy label. Issued on LP, CD and cassette in the UK, Europe and Japan only.
A white label test pressing LP was made with a slightly different sleeve (a red / yellow logo and a light blue title on the front and a few notes are missing on the back sleeve) and a small promo poster. The front and back sleeves are just two 12" sheets: the front sleeve is printed on photo paper, the back sleeve on normal paper. Probably only a few copies exist.

Other notes
All tracks are the original BBC session versions, except track 5, which has been edited. The guitar intro was removed, because the BBC master tapes are damaged.
