NOTES
Signs Of Change:- Released by ATF on own label through frustration with Christian record labels. Very limited release, some with lyric sheet.

One Rule For You / Time To Think
:- Given to fans who attended a concert in fancy dress. Numbered edition.

Starflight:- Initially due for release but pulled along with original 80-f album.

80-f original release:- Pulled by CBS, contains unreleased tracks including "Operator", "Satellite In Orbit" and "Another World". Also contains "Love Will Always Make You Cry" with bongo intro.

Love Will Always Make You Cry:- Initial copies released without picture sleeve. Friends distribute some covers, however, later copies included cover.

Dancing In The Shadows original release:- Although not released with picture sleeve the art work shown was recovered from the Friends Office in Oxford Street (2 known to survive)

Der Kommissar: - Re-released after revamped "Dancing In The Shadows" was released. Also contains reworked "One Rule For You" and "Starflight".

Free Heat:- The album was promoted on the 8 Ball single but never came to light (even with a ferret within the CBS/Epic archives).

Der Kommissar - The CBS Recordings :- All three CBS albums with b-sides and live tracks.

AT2F:- The demos that would have formed the next ATF album just before the split in 1984.
