Additional Notes

Red flexi, free with Smash Hits magazine March 1980. 'The Olympian' is taken from the soon-to-be-released remixed version of Days In Europa. 'Ten Feet Tall' is a different version to the track on Drums & Wires and was also issued as a US single in March 1980. Both tracks feature BBC radio DJ Richard Skinner blabbering shit over the music.
