Same tracks as the 12" single, however, they are in a slightly
different order. The 12" mix was remixed by Stephen Hague &
Mike 'Spike' Drake.
Not counting the 1988 CD re-issue of 'This is Not a Love Song';
this was PiL's first CD single release.
Lu Edmonds, who had left
the band by the recording of '9', receives a co-credit on both tracks,
but does not play on them. Producer Steven Hague also receives a
co-credit on 'Disappointed'.
A promo video was shot
for the single. Directed by Mick Haggerty.
