Recording Information

Originally released on 9 September 1996 in the U.K.
Reached No. 33 on the U.K. album chart.

“It's funny when you think about it,” Andy ponders. . . “Singles collections are a bit like the desserts from all the meals - there isn't any of the spuds and the meat. I think all our best stuff tends to lurk around in the corners of the albums.”
