Notes: A singles compilation (1981-88).
Personally selected by Lawrence, this compilation comprises the Cherry Red and Creation years. The promo cd was distributed in plastic slip case with b/w card insert. In some sites I've came across a greenish cover (a misprint?), but I have the original and the promo and they all have b/w covers.

Note: Without the original artwork and not including "Crucifix Heaven". According to Tim Wright from Cherry Red, Lawrence didn't like this song.
Also "Dismantled king..." and "Crystal ball" are switched in the cd backcover tracklisting.
Probably Lawrence was not too happy big the original cover, that's why the minimalism (in Me and a monkey on the moon inlay, there's a display called A Decade in music showing Felt's 10 albuns and 10 singles. Strange idols is displayed with the back cover)
