 A-side didn't make it's US appearance until the "Waxworks" collection...the B-side single version of "Ten Feet Tall" was an A side over here!...John

 Were there any American copies of this on RSO?.

 Very evocative sleeve design, based on the Bryant & May "Ship" matchbox label. Just in case any non-UK members were puzzled by the "Guaranteed to strike".

 B-side, (Ten Feet Tall) - Even though the labels and sleeve don't say it, this is commonly known as the "US" version..as it was released in the USA as an "A" side (a couple of months before the UK release). More poppier than the LP version (on "Drums and Wires").

 The XTC track that adorns the B-Side of this underwhelming A-side would have been a Top 5 hit single in the style of "Senses Working Overtime"..what WERE Virgin thinking of?
