Limited edition picture disc version also released (catalogue no. CALP147).

"Midas Touch" was only on the UK version, while the US version included a bonus track: "Suzie Hold On" (1983 re-recording). The Korean version is missing the title track, due to censorship.

9. Denim and Leather (live) (5:11)
10. Suzie Hold on '82 (Jeff Glixman version) (5:01)
