The Tell No Lies and Romantic Traffic singles turn 30 this year. After the huge success of Nova Heart and the Arias and Symphonies album in 1982, the band would next team up with super producer Nile Rodgers (Chic, David Bowie, Madonna, Daft Punk) to record some of their most popular songs ever.

Included on this EP are the previously unreleased Candy Apple and several songs from the Listen To The City movie by Ron Mann. As an added bonus, this collection also includes a brand new retake on Romantic Traffic sung by Sandy Horne.
