Vinyl[edit]

The double vinyl LP has a slightly different tracklisting as it opens with the then forthcoming singles "True Skool" and "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" with all other tracks appearing in the same order as the CD. While such changes are sometimes made to vinyl versions to ensure sides are of a similar length, this is not the case as the only two tracks that would have been on different sides (i.e. "Just for the Kick" should be on side one and "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" should be on side two) are almost identical in length (both just over five minutes long).

  2. "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" (feat. Robert Owens)

  1. "Just for the Kick" (feat. Annette Peacock)
