Madness - Work, Rest & Play


On this date in 1980, Madness released an EP called Work, Rest & Play. It came in two versions. The 7 inch contained four songs, "Night Boat To Cairo" (a re-mixed version), "Deceive The Eye", "The Young And The Old" and "Don't Quote Me On That". The 12 inch version had two additional songs; "Swan Lake" and a second mix of "Don't Quote Me On That". The only song to appear on a regular studio album was "Night Boat To Cairo" which appeared on their first album, One Step Beyond. Of course, that was a different mix. The EP went to #6 on the U.K. album chart.
