Short story:

Full article:

Ricky Ross (Deacon Blue) : We got terrible pres when we released the b-sides album, Ooh Las Vegas. They absolutely slated us. But the reason we did that was because Sony had brought out a b-sides album called Riches which they coupled with (Deacon Blue’s first album) Raintown and people had to re-buy Raintown in order to get the bonus tracks. So we brought out Las Vegas to stop ripping people off, but Sony pushed it as our next studio album. Sony can’t just put something out quietly. They’re a big machine and, once the machine gets going, they can’t think in any other way. It’s like having a rottweiler and trying to train it to catch balls. They’re a big beast, and what they want to do is sell records and sell them any way they can.
