However, the version of "Wasted" that appears on the single is a different recording from that of the LP, as is its B-side, "Hello America".
The spoken word intro to "When the Walls Came Tumbling Down" was performed by Dave Cousins of Strawbs fame, although Joe Elliott had done the spoken portion in earlier live performances and demo recordings that showed up on some early bootlegs. In his biography, Cousins claims that he did his best Laurence Olivier impersonation for the song's intro. The album received mostly positive reviews.

Most of the songs on the album were dropped from the band's live setlists afteralthough "Rock Brigade" and "Wasted" would see periodic revivals after Also, the non-album track from the same era entitled "Good Morning Freedom" would be played live in during the opening to the "Viva Hysteria" shows.
