" "Come Anytime"... best described as a romantic song about an unromantic subject but you can reverse the adjectives and the statement would be equally correct.
"Cajun Country" wears its Creedence influence proudly on its sleeve which is probably the reason we (foolishly) left if off the album and consigned it to the obscurity of a flip-side..." - Dave Faulkner.[6]

The 7" single was released as a limited edition picture disc, shaped like a skull with crossed guitars.

"Come Anytime" is used as the theme song for the Original Australian version of Thank God You're Here (2006-2009) and the 2007 American version.
