It was Peter’s first video compilation release and came off the back of the enormous success of the So album. All the videos from that record were present; Big Time, Sledgehammer, Don’t Give Up, Mercy Street and Red Rain but it also contained a couple of notable videos from previous albums; Shock the Monkey and I Don’t Remember.
An alternate version of the Don’t Give Up video, directed by Jim Blashfield, was also included.
