Villa Albani maxi single

Villa Albani maxi single

Villa Albani is released as a 12" maxi single, with the instrumental version and Hungry For Love on the B-side.

Cancelled CD re-release

A re-release on CD of this album was planned for 2001, including the outtake She Never Took No For An Answer and an instrumental version of the Villa Albani (which was first released on 12" in Germany in 1984, together with the album version and Hungry For Love).

The release was cancelled at the last moment for unknown reasons. Considering that She Never ... was co-written with Larry Sloman, including the song on an expanded version of Artificial Intelligence would have made sense too. Track down a copy of the Sid & Nancy soundtrack if you want to hear it on CD.
