Additional Notes

Another double 'A' side, or triple 'A' Side if you like. The "Pontius" bit on the credits is on the back cover only. 'Tank' is from the LP Black And White; 'Walk On By' given away as part of a free single with first 75,000 copies of said LP. Lew Lewis (ex-Eddie & The Hot Rods) is credited with harp i.e. mouth harp as in harmonica. There was also a promotional version on which 'Walk On By' was edited down to 4:24, completely removing Dave Greenfield's keyboard solo.
