The 2000 CD omits the following SULK related tracks: It's Better This Way (B-side version), Club Country (Extended Version), Party Fears Two (extended), A.G It's You Again, and Voluntary Wishes Swap-it Production. The 2016 2-CD includes three of these missing tracks, but "A.G It's You Again" & "Voluntary Wishes Swap-it Production" are still not available on CD!

An unreleased instrumental version of "Skipping" (3.40) was included on a German 3-CD compilation "All My Sins Remembered - The Sonic Worlds of John Murphy" (6 June 2016, cat no The Epicurean, cure.10) (limited to 750 copies). It was recorded 25 August 1981 at The Playground, London. "This mix: 2016." I'm not sure if that means that the track was originally recorded with vocals which were removed in 2016, or if it was indeed an (early) instrumental which was properly mixed in 2016.

Linda Wren, who knew Billy well, told the Associates mailing list 20 March 1999: "The original A.P was always classed as a bit strange and weird for the general pop listening population. So someone had the bright idea of re-mixing it so it would appeal and sound more 'pop friendly'. It probably got onto CD for the same reasons. Billy couldn't stand it and felt he had sold himself for doing it."

  13. Take Me To the Girl 4.24 (2-CD 6 May 2002 with PERHAPS on CD 2: WEA 8573884962)
The original album tracks were recorded 1987-88. Produced by Boris Blank (CD tracks 6-8, 11) Chris Hughes/Ross Cullum (CD track 2), Die Zwei/Zensor GmbH (CD track 5), and Peter Henderson (CD track 13, and probably the rest as well: 1-4, 9-10, 12).

Tracks 1-6 and 9-11 were originally planned for release in Nov 1988 on LP, MC and CD. 'Heaven's Blue' and 'Take Me To the Girl' were planned as extra tracks on the cassette and CD. A new release date for THE GLAMOUR CHASE was set for 24 Oct 1989, with a slightly different track listing: Reach the Top / Terror Beat / You'd Be the One / Heart of Glass / Because You Love / Country Boy / The Rhythm Divine/ Empires of the Heart / Set Me Up / In Windows All. Planned extra tracks for the 1989 cassette/CD version were: Snowball, Just Can't Say Goodbye, Take Me To the Girl, Heart of Glass 12" version. (Thanks to Gary Lornie for this information - he has the proof cover that was used to sell the album to the shops.) However its release was once again postponed and it was not released until 6 May 2002 (as a double CD with PERHAPS).

Nov/Dec 1988 limited 7"/CDM The Associates: Country Boy

    Country Boy 3.03 / Just Can't Say Goodbye 3.55 [fade-out of 12" mix] (7": WEA, YZ 329)
  1. Country Boy 3.03
  2. Just Can't Say Goodbye (12" Mix) 7.19
  3. Take Me To the Girl 4.24 [1985 single]
  4. Heart of Glass (Dub Mix by Francis Kevorkian/Goh Hotoda) 5.03 (3" CD-maxi: YZ 329CD)
Side A produced by Die Zwei/Zensor GmbH, side B produced by Peter Henderson. Only 5.000 singles of the 7" was pressed up, and I assume less of the CD single. The release date or even the month is not known, as it was never released properly. One singles catalogue I have even says January 1989, and the Associates Singles collection CD booklet says June 1989 and marks it as unreleased. Obviously the B-side was recorded for THE GLAMOUR CHASE but I assume it was not included due to lack of space on the vinyl LP. It was re-recorded for WILD AND LONELY with a new producer.

Note: The US CD/cassette has a different 4.59 mix of Ever Since That Day, including a sax & trumpet solo from 3.11 to 3.34. Some fans and sources also claim that more tracks on the US release are differently mixed compared to the UK album.

Glamour Chase was still not released by 1992, so Billy decided to include one of its tracks (In Windows All) as the last track on Outernational. So, in essence it was really an "extra track" on Outernational. Glamour Chase came out eventually on CD in 2002, so it would have been logical not to include that track again on the 2006 & 2013 CD, but to add other relevant extra tracks instead.
