The sleeve notes from Steve Morris were adapted from the letter he sent to record shops and promoters when the “Ideal” EP was released in 1978. One hundred of these EPs came with a free postcard.

It is not likely that more genuine Hawkeyes will be released. New, good quality Joy Division tapes are unavailable and not likely to turn up, while New Order is not strong enough to sell. Even a kind of “Greatest Hits” was tagged unsuitable. The album should have had the promo versions of Confusion, Thieves Like Us and The Perfect Kiss together with the Hacienda flexi, the Blue Monday remix and 5.8.6 from the “Touch” cassette.
