OTHER NOTES
The version of Angel of Harlem which appears on the single releases is very slightly remixed.  The horns are edited to be louder in the overall mix.  The musical tracks used for the single version seem to be identical except for the changes in volume in the final mix.  The track is labelled as a remix on some versions, and not on others, but it is indeed the same version on all releases.

The version of A Room at the Heartbreak Hotel which appears on this release is not the same version appearing on the Best of 1980-1990 B Sides disc.  The version appearing on the BSides disc is an edit of this version and runs 4:34 in length.
