❖ The original version of “Fly Like An Eagle” was mastered at the wrong speed on the “Beautiful People” single. A very small number of corrected CD singles were subsequently released in the UK.
“The track was printed at the wrong speed by accident, probably by record company during mastering. The song was written in an afternoon at REL studios in Edinburgh. The label needed a song quick and the rest of the band were unavailable so I went in that afternoon and recorded all parts myself. Unfortunately I had to sing as well as write the lyrics, not one of my strengths...”
