Left To My Own Devices appears on the 1988 album, Introspective.

"We played a rough demo of this [Left To My Own Devices] to 'Trevor Horn' and asked him if he'd like to produce it. At the time he was infamous for spending months on a track to get it right but he came up with a fascinating idea: we'd commission an orchestral arrangement, programme the synthesisers and record the song live in one day! We started work on it and six months later the track was finished..." - Quote from the front CD insert of the 1991 compilation, Discography.
