All music and videos are previously unrelased (apart from 3 excerpts that were released on "Influence"). The Image of a Group was a group name adopted by Anne Dudley, Trevor Horn, Lol Creme and Paul Morley. Then JJ Jeczalik allowed them to use the old group name "Art of Noise" (which he legally owned with Anne Dudley) and in early 1997 they consequently renamed themselves as Art of Noise.
