Notes

The guest singer Debi Diamond singing on White Rabbit (Jefferson Airplane cover) is not to be confused with the porn star of the same name.

According to Rob Stanzel's FAC 2.26 The Durutti Column Discography: "'Catos con Guantes' is a Spanish/Mexican phrase I encountered in L.A. -- means "Cats with Gloves... don't catch mice". I thought if I was Paco de Lucia I'd think the musician was wearing gloves." [Vini Reilly letter to Alan Macdougall, 1989/07]

The full Spanish phrase is "Gato con guantes no caza ratones". The spelling error has been retained on subsequent reissues for copyright registration reasons.
