Fun, Fun, Fun, When You Walk In The Room, Don't Stop and All Around My Hat were all released as singles, although only the first of these reached the British Top 30. However the album entered the chart at No 2 in the first week of a three-month stay, making it their best performing album of the decade apart from their 1990 compilation "Rocking All Over The Years".
