ATCO decided to sanitise this for the American market, taking out Tony Sheridan’s swearword on ‘Take Out Some Insurance On Me, Baby’. The original line went: “Take out some insurance on me, baby… Some goddammed insurance on me”, but the sanitised version went “Take out some insurance on me, baby… Oooh, some insurance on me.” (Much better!)

They also brought in a session drummer to re-record the drum track on ‘Sweet Georgia Brown’, merging it with a brand-new guitar part.
