"The first titled reissue of this seminal mini album, originally released on Rough Trade in 1983 by pop fusion innovators, Weekend. The CD features 10 bonus tracks including 3 previously unreleased versions of tracks that weren't included on the original album. These were sourced from a pirate recording of the original gig in March 1983. Other bonus tracks include 3 tracks from a David Jensen BBC session and a recording from the legendary TV music programme, Old Grey Whistle Test. The CD artwork has been expanded by original band member Spike Williams, and he has contributed some of his recollections of the night in question. Includes a 12-page booklet with a biography and discography. Weekend were formed after the demise of the respected band, Young Marble Giants who featured Alison Statton as vocalist. Weekend went on to release 3 singles and two albums before calling it a day. Two thirds of the band went on to work together with Alison Statton and Spike Williams, with remaining member Simon Booth forming Latin jazz soul band, Working Week."
