Reviews & Opinions

CLIFF WHITE, SMASH HITS, MAY 17- 31, 1979: In the interests of public harmony and goodwill to all, I have no comment to make about this track from El's Armed Forces, except to tell you it is now available on single, and that the two songs on t'other side, 'Talking In The Dark' and 'Wednesday Week', were previously only issued on a limited-edition flexi-disc. A hit.

Additional Notes

'Talking In The Dark' and 'Wednesday Week' had previously been issued as a gig freebie (here). The UK edition came in too many sleeves. The US version didn't even warrant one.
