The title track was released as a UK single and was banned by the BBC, but was nevertheless a hit in several other countries.

Genetic Records (2), Island Records.

Label: Western Songs ‎– VARCD001. Format: CD, Album, Reissue, Remastered. Produced and engineered at Genetic Sound, England. Tracks 11 to 16 are extra tracks not found on the original release.

It was the first single from his album of the same title, released in 1981. Shelley wrote the song in 1974, before forming the Buzzcocks in 1976. The track adopted a more synth pop sound in contrast to the Buzzcocks' harsh guitar riffs.

But more importantly, this is the only attempt by Shelley to retain the compressed, tight, hard production and vocals of his band work, despite the new genre and the predominance of a 12-string acoustic in favor of the old buzzsaw.

The previous comments are incorrect. Track 10 has an incorrect time - it is actually 3:49. Track 11 is incorrectly labelled on the release - it is actually the second part of Track 10 "It's Hard Enough Knowing" which is split at a natural break. The 2006 reissue has the track unsplit (5:38). Track 12 contains both "Witness The Change" (4:51) and "Maxine" (3:29)
tracks 11 & 12 have incorrect edit points. "Witness The Change" is approx. 4:47 but the bulk of the cut is included in the track on the disc for "Maxine." There is no silence between tracks 11 & 12, so it sounds normal to hear but the mastering is definitely in error. If the listener wanted to rip "Witness The CHange," they would have only the first 1:46 of the song.
No. You are mistaken. The 1:49 track 11 is the end of "It's Hard Enough Knowing". It isn't the beginning of "Witness The Change".All that has happened here is that the track identification marker which should have been between the tracks "Witness The Change" and "Maxine" has accidently been placed at a point within the track "It's Hard Enough Knowing" splitting it in half visually. However, the audio is unaffected.Therefore:Track 10/11 = one track: "It's Hard Enough Knowing"Track 12 = two tracks: "Witness The Change" & "Maxine"
