    Again, many thanks, Paul. A very underrated record IMO that should have done much than it did in the UK charts.

    Thanks, again, Paul! Such a risqué sleeve for 1988 😉 It might even get banned by today’s Facebook standards.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Christian yeah Pete got pretty naughty for this album. I think there was a banned album sleeve in Japan.

    I have the CD picture disc of this single, and on it, there are two additional seconds at the start of the instru-mental mix of Something In My House. You can hear them here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Qrm3yDLjXw

    Paul, could you please delete my previous comment? I posted it on the wrong page.

  15. Ally Says:

    The instrumental mix of Something In My House on this single is the same as that on the original Something In My House 12″, only the stereo channels are reversed! Also the instrumental mix edit has the stereo channels reversed.
