  • The song "Wal to Wal" is the first recorded song on which Phil Collins used a Roland drum machine. (The first recorded Genesis song on which he used a drum machine is Duchess.)
  • Both "Don't Make Waves" and "Soho" were released as singles and feature Phil Collins on vocals.
  • The non-album songs "Pool Room Blues" and "Noddy Goes To Sweden" were outtakes from the "Product" sessions and used as B-sides to one of the singles. "Noddy Goes To Sweden" was also used on the 1980 album release of "Do They Hurt?"
  • Various releases of the album switch the track list with "...And So to F..." and "Not Good Enough - See Me!"
