About

Paul had the final decision about which bonus tracks went on these new CDs and cassettes and I think he felt that Tug Of War should stand as it was, without the additional tracks that we suggested, because the effect might be diluted by adding something out of context.

Tony Wadsworth, marketing directory at Parlophone, in Club Sandwich #66, Summer 1993
