Nothing Wrong, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry's third album, released in 1988, was their first LP on the Beggars Banquet offshoot, Situation Two, in the UK. In the US it was released by Beggars Banquet/RCA. The US version included two bonus tracks, the UK single "Open Up" (previously chosen by New Musical Express as a Single of the Week[3]) and the B-side "The Rise". The album's title track and "Only Dreaming (Wide Awake)" were issued as singles in the UK. Nothing Wrong featured some occasional audio excerpts from Sir Laurens Van Der Post's BBC television series documentary Testament To A Bushmen (stills from which were used as the source of the album's front and back covers). The album included a bizarre and unrecognizable version of Booker T. & the M.G.'s' "Time Is Tight".
