Notes

Whilst essentially an album by The Durutti Column, this release is credited to Vini Reilly. Most of the tracks on this album were later re-released on 'The Return of the Sporadic Recordings' (Kooky Records, 2002) which was a double cd combining one disc with all of The Sporadic Recordings (except for those tracks which had already been released as extra tracks on the Factory Once re-releases) and a second disc with new tracks, rarities, and outtakes, etc. The Sporadic theme was continued with Sporadic Three.

The word stamp on last page of the booklet of is written in the Japanese language using "kanji" (Chinese characters) and is roughly pronounced "Vini Reilly."

Bi Ni Rai Ri - Vini Reilly

Key

The first line: Stamp on booklet
The second line: Adapted to English
The third line: General pronunciation in Japanese

Bi means "Beauty"
Ni means "Look like" or "Resemble"
Rai means "Thunder"
Ri means "Profit" or "Advantage"
