The U.S.A. Mixes were the same but with vocal samples reproduced by anyone who was hanging out in the studio. Stick to the superior UK mixes.

Artwork is one of the first record sleeves created by graphic designer Trevor Jackson of Underdog, Playgroup and Output Records fame. The UK 7″ came in a variant sleeve showing a large S-Express logo on the front.

Extra trivia: Mark became friends with Trevor when he was DJing at The Wag Club and Trevor came up to ask what record was playing. (The record was the Francois Kervorkian Mix of Depeche Mode’s ‘Behind The Wheel’ which years later Trevor did a cover version of.)

Chart position:

UK #1 – April 1988 for 2 weeks.
