- Allegedly recorded live on 18/06/1985, Royal Albert Hall, London, UK,
- which has, however, proofed wrong. Both tracks are in fact studio recordings.
- Some sources name "Demos recorded in Strawberry Studios in 1985" as the origin of these recordings,
- the recording sessions at Strawberry Studios did, however, take place in 1984.
- NOTE: A coloured version of this records was used as Record 3 in the 3x7" FUNN 7" Triple Pack.
