Power in the Darkness (May 1978) - Tom Robinson Band

Tom Robinson Band - Power in the Darkness album cover« Tom Robinson Band

My version of Power in the Darkness has two disks: The original Power in the Darkness album and a "Bonus LP" with seven additional songs.

Among the tracks on the "Bonus LP" are "2-4-6-8 Motorway," (which I have on 7-inch) and the gay anthem "Glad to Be Gay."

I guess you could say the "Bonus LP" was a precursor to the common "bonus tracks" later found on digital releases. Of course, that was surely more expensive to release than just tacking on extra digital tracks. These days there are probably even more than seven bonus tracks on versions of Power in the Darkness.
