Pete Byrne told me: "The English version of Promises Promises was felt to be too long for a single, so it was re-cut for the USA. The verse referring to a "cup of tea" was considered too "Limey" by the "Yanks" so a new verse was written, which actually improved the song. (Thank you, Bob Curry.)"

Pete Byrne told me: "A change in personnel at the label led to people making decisions that ultimately broke up the band. I had recently married an American girl and was spending most of my time in Los Angeles. Rob was in London and our Management in New York. Record Company A&R people live and die by the bands they sign and when they are fired or given new positions (Head of creative metamorphosis, etc.) the bands they signed are left to fend for themselves. EMI released one single with little promotion and that was that. After this, Rob joined Simon Climie in Climie Fisher. I hung out in LA, doing session work with Stevie Wonder (you can hear me on "Part time Lover") writing and recording with Stevie's Producer Gary Olazabal, and his Keyboard player Brad Buxer. Actually there's a lot of material from this period which I'll be making available some time soon."

Arthur Baker also did an extended version of Sacrifice, which was planned as the second single, but it was not released until 2002.
