1985: more of andy's stuff (in pursuit of Atlantic deal)
1989: dance remix of One Rule (personally spliced together by PB. A reel so frightening fragile I was amazed we played it even once).
Lots of live stuff exists too, and more comes to light over time. Hope this summary is helpful. See my site for comprehensive details on all the above. This site is currently being reworked.
