NOTES:
Cassette issue from Thailand release by Rock Records & Tapes, marketed and distributed by Fever Music Entertainment.

nb. the catalogue number is printed as both “CTUMM132” and “CSTUMM132”, it is presumed that the latter is correct as this matches the format of Mute cassette catalogue numbers.

Rock Records & Tapes also released the Thai cassette edition of Acme and South Korean CD versions of Acme and Now I Got Worry.

This edition has fifteen rather than the usual 16 tracks ommitting the Dub Narcotic Sound System cover version Fuck Shit Up.

This album features appearances by Thermos Malling of Doo Rag (2Kindsa Love / Sticky), Mark Ramos Nishita a.k.a. Money Mark (Chicken Dog / Can’t Stop / Firefly Child, Rufus Thomas (Chicken Dog) and Justin Berry (Firefly Child).

Now I Got Worry was released on vinyl, CD and cassette with the Japanese CD edition including Cool Vee and Get With It as bonus tracks and the 2010 expanded reissue including 11 rare tracks, four radio spots and a previously unreleased song titled Roosevelt Hotel Blues.

In the UK Wail and 2Kindsa Love were released as singles, in Australia there was a 7″ and CD of Rocketship and the US only saw promotional editons of Wail and 2Kindsa Love issued.

The artwork for the UK and US promo editions of Controversial Negro was originally intended for this album.
