Originally released on the She's Having A Baby soundtrack in 1988, This Woman's Work was the first track to be completed for the new album. Del Palmer convinced Kate to add it to The Sensual World.
Be Kind To My Mistakes was originally released on the Castaway soundtrack in 1987, so technically, it's not really a non-LP track. But it's not easy to find, and the version that appears on this single is quite different, so I've included it on my Non-LP/CD list.
This was the second of two Austrian 3" CD singles that were distributed throughout the EEC. A few other 3" discs were made in Japan. (Scan courtesy of Pertti.)
