B-sides[edit]

The song 'Wrappup' is a dubbed version of 'All Wrapped Up' (which features on Junk Culture). The second B-side, a live version of 'Waiting For The Man', only featured on the extended version of the single (the extended version of 'Never Turn Away' has an extra verse added to the song). The live of 'Waiting For The Man' was recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon. Picture discs include a unique extended version of "Never Turn Away".
