This album has been remastered by Dave Bowie Jr in 2013 and released by the Ukulele Orchestra Of Great Britain, reissuing all of Really’s recordings. It features Kitty, Dave and Mark, and George on later tracks. George and Kitty are now the directors of UOGB, and so this CD includes the earliest recordings they made together.

Really emerged from the same cradle as the Mekons, the Sisters Of Mercy and the Gang Of Four.

The recordings also feature Snake Davis, sax player with M People and

Eurythmics. Snake, Dave and Mark have worked with Edwin Starr, Martha And The Vandellas and William Bell.

Dave was the original bass player with UOGB, and still appears with them when opportunity allows.
