When vinyl was prevalent, the songs on an album were determined by the medium. Often tracks had to be dropped off due to loss of quality or time constraints. I’m Eating in Bed was one of these. It would later be reinstated on A Little Man and a House and the Whole World Window when the Alphabet Business Concern reissued the album on CD, but in the ’80s I’m Eating in Bed was relegated to B-side status. This is a great shame, as it is one of the very best songs from the era. A joint Smith/D. There’s Too Many Irons in the Fire was included on the Cardiacs Live LP, the All That Glitters is a Mare’s Nest LP and VHS and the Songs For Ships and Irons compilation LP. A music video (which was never released) was made by Nick Elborough and Mark Francombe, and an animation (unknown creator) was also made at some point.
It was the first Cardiacs release to exclusively feature the so-called classic 1980s line-up of the band (Tim Smith on lead vocals and guitar, Jim Smith on bass guitar and backing vocals, William D. Drake on keyboards and backing vocals, Sarah Smith on saxophones and backing vocals, Tim Quy on percussion and Dominic Luckman on drums). The anthemic title track has become a key Cardiacs song, played at nearly every concert and appearing on most of their live albums
