NOTES

The second track on this EP was originally titled 'Bell Of New York', taken from the title of the barrel organ melody that opens the song.

The third track on this EP was untitled on this release, but had originally featured on a 1983 radio session where it was called 'The Nursery At The End Of Time'. The track subsequently featured as the B-side to the November 1985 single 'Darkness Has Reached Its End' where it was simply titled 'The End Of Time'.

 

TRIVIA

The barrel organ intro to the second track on the EP was actually recorded by Virginia from a juke box in the London department shop Fortnum & Mason.

The Mayking Records Ltd test pressings were date stamped 10 Dec 1984.
