"When we did this track (I Was In Chains), I was influenced by Ry Cooder's acoustic period, in particular his soundtrack to The Long Rider, where he explored early American folk music - the kind of thing the cowboys might have been playing and listening to. I wanted to have those Celtic overtones on I Was In Chains and we explored the idea of getting The Chieftains in, but I couldn't believe how much they were quoting to do it! So we thought, 'Sod that, we'll recreate it', and if anything, it probably benefits from that." - Quote by Paul Young, May 2013, from the liner notes of the 2-CD collection Remixes And Rarities first released in 2013 by Cherry Pop Records, Cat. No. CRPOPD128.

The album version of I Was In Chains appears on The Secret of Association, an album first released in 1985.
