Notes

'Our Lady of the Angels' also appears on Time Was Gigantic / Reissued Experiments [FACDR 2.41], the Factory Once reissue of Domo Arigato [FACDO 144] and the Factory US compilation 'Young Popular and Sexy'.
DV8 is an experimental dance troupe led by Lloyd Newson; the video to When The World is quite an avant garde affair featuring the DV8 dancers. Bruce Mitchell has a cameo walking across a bridge.

A note on the CD Video edition from Rob Stanzel's Fac 2.26 The Durutti Column website FAQ reads:

"Q: How do I play the When The World CD-Video?

"A: You probably can't. CDVs were a short-lived late-1980s hybrid format: digital audio CD tracks with one analog video track appended. (This is distinct from the more recent Video CD format, which is mediocre-quality compressed digital video on a CD.) You need old-style laserdisc player capability to view the CDV video track and what's more, When The World was a UK issue so the analog encoding is in a particular format, PAL.

"Now, laserdisc players were fairly big in Japan and were a reasonably-sized videophile market in the US, both of which use NTSC format rather than PAL. Multi-format players exist but are extremely rare, and I'm led to believe that PAL LD players are quite uncommon even in the UK & other PAL-using countries, so the videotape releases (on which the WtW video track is longer, btw) are your best bet."

Notes

Reissued on Factory Once as FACDO 204 with extra tracks from Valuable Passages and WOMAD Live.

There is a 30" x 40" promotional poster for this release.

Fact 204d The Guitar and Other Machines was the first ever commercially available DAT.

The VHS video is identical to the Fac 194 video, but housed in a generic Media Communication case. It was probably used to promote the album. The label reads: '24.10.87 Factory Communications Ltd., Fact 204 Durutti Column'.

The FAC 214 Guitar and Other Marketing Devices square 7" flexi discs was available freely in record shops to promote the album.
