All the tracks on the album featured on a single release in the UK. Either as the A-side or B-side.
At around the same time as writing and recording this album, Queen were also approached to provide the soundtrack for the movie "The Hotel New Hampshire". Queen's manager Jim Beach was a producer on the film. In the end, the project fell by the wayside, with only "Keep Passing Open Windows" remaining from that body of work.
