While it is noted as 'Film Theme' on the sleeve, on the actual vinyl label
it is stated as 'film scene'....does anyone know is there a story behind
that or just a simple mistake that we shouldn't read into??
either way a damn fine instrumental it is.

An error was also made on the first "I Travel" 12" release. This Ariola
pressing (called The Soldier Sleeve) lists "Film Theme" and "Kaleidoscope"
as "Includes Two Previously Unreleased Tracks. "Obviously in error, as "Film
Theme" had been available on "Real To Real Cacophony".
I guess they intended to include "Film Theme Dub" instead. This is Simple
Minds rarest track - only available on the limited edition blue flexi-disc
with the first release of I Travel. Check it out if you can - it's a very
radical departure from the original instrumental.
All the best,
