* WhatCloudHaveBeen: Want to know what ''Liverpool'' would have sounded like had Trevor Horn produced it? All of the remixes of "Warriors of the Wasteland" were produced by Horn, and they definitely sit alongside the ''Pleasuredome'' material. Ditto his additional production on the "Rage Hard" extended mixes.

* ToughActToFollow: ''Welcome To The Pleasuredome'', and indeed their phenomenal success in 1984 in general. Just about anything would have been a disappointment after that. Case in point: in 1985, when their fourth single debuted at #2 on the chart instead of #1, some critics began to jump off of the Frankie bandwagon.

* OneHitWonder: In the United States, Frankie is only known for "Relax". They had five very successful singles in Europe, with "Two Tribes" being the highest selling single of 1984 in Britain.

* ArchivePanic: ZTT's penchant for releasing a myriad of edits for each single, often across every format available at the time, causes this. The 2012 compilation ''Sex Mix'' was the first time many of their cassette singles were digitized.

The 2012 compilation ''Sex Mix'' was the first time many of their cassette singles were digitized. All of their singles were finally re-issued in their original tracklists by record label Salvo between 2012 and 2014, which was great…until the ''Inside the Pleasuredome'' box set came out with evern more unreleased mixes.

* NightmareFuel: Patrick Allen reading advice on dealing with a nuclear attack on the extended mixes of "Two Tribes". And if that didn't get you, all the facts and figures about nuclear weapons on the single sleeve just might. Basically, we're all going to die horribly. Probably by 1990.
