"Hold On My Heart" and "Way Of The World" are taken from "We Can't Dance" album. "Home By The Sea (Live)" has been previously unreleased on CD. Apparently, this version is taken from 1983 Genesis tour.



As the previous singles from the series, the digipak has a white tray and was produced by AGI Inc. by James Upton, England. There is no booklet nor card with this single. Inside photo of Tony Banks, Phil Collins and Mike Rutherford and upcoming tour dates.

The catalogue number of the single is GENSD 8. As the previous singles from the series, this one also contains additional numbers printed on the disc label. 665 334 is printed on disc and on the back. For some reasons, French distribution code, PM 515, is only present on disc.

The CD is silver with a black tone and purple text. There is no country of manufacture present on disc, but the manufacturer is Nimbus.
