- Ain't That Always The Way 3:04 (Collins)
- Punk Rock Hotel (Closing Time) 4:42 (Collins/Heard)
- Corrina Corrina 2:46 (Trad. Arr)


Produced by Edwyn Collins and Paul Heard
Original Sound Recording by Alan Horne (from the soundtrack of "Punk Rock Hotel")
and engineered by Gerry Kitchingham
Remixed by Chris Porter
12" came in a die-cut sleeve with yellow OBI Strip
Punk Rock Hotel (Closing Time) is an instrumental by Edwyn & Paul Heard
Paul Quinn sings lead vocal on the other two tracks
Corrina is most commonly heard on Bob Dylan's "Freewheelin'"album from 1963
Edwyn was still under contract to Polydor and they were unhappy
with this being released under his name - hence this single is credited solely to Quinn
Quinn is no longer listed as appearing courtesy of MCA, so presumably he has
been extricated from his Bourgie Bourgie contract by this point
Did not make the UK Chart top 75
