Album Title[edit]

Further to the inspiration behind the album title as quoted in the article, it may be purely coincidental but I note the album was released in the UK shortly before the 1979 general election, which was expected & subsequently proved to be of historic significance.

Clarifying on the single mixes replacing the album versions on later pressings[edit]

The release history paragraph was not completely correct. As one can see from discogs, the first track to be replaced with its single version was "Dance Away", not "Angel Eyes". The disco re-recording of "Angel Eyes" was put in place of the album version in the mid 80s, when the album was released on CD for the first time. There are no versions of the album with the original "Dance Away" and the re-recorded "Angel Eyes": in fact most vinyl copies will have the opposite. Also, there is no evidence that the 1999 Remaster with the original "Angel Eyes" and the single "Dance Away" was a result of a mistake: as I've mentioned, this is the version of the album that most people probably had back then. Hope this clarifies. Zappafripp (talk) 20:14, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
