Columbia Records took over The Boomtown Rats from Mercury, replaced "Can't Stop" and " The Normal People" with "Mary Of The 4th Form" and "Joey's On The Street Again" from the first album, resequenced the tracks, and delayed the American release until February 1979.

I've swallowed it now and trying to move on. However, I have been prompted to move too by Bobby Boomtown himself who has pushed me into a project with one of the Rats' old friends from Dublin who is going to make a 'history of the Rats' type documentary; so if any of you have old footage (super 8 etc), posters/flyers that can be copied and sent or rare. Back to gigs soon and we all on tip toes for the forthcoming album.
