Two versions of this album were made. The one with the tracks listed on the left hand side of the front cover is the rarest and most collectable. It is also the most valuable. The most interesting feature about the front cover of this album is that Linda is not on it! She was ill with diarrhoea the day of the photo shoot and was unable to attend the shoot. A look alike was sourced and used. It was not noticed by anyone and still today most people are unaware of it. However when the album was given a makeover and released in Japan in 1981 the pictures are a lot clearer and feature close up. It can clearly be seen that the person who is purporting to be Linda is a fake! this album was recorded over a one week period which is quite an accomplisment considering the size of the orchestra and the album's arrangements

*Tracks For The Following Three Albums Are The Same As "TWENTY GIANT HITS" plus five extra bonus tracks*

The album featured all the singles from the Target Records period. This album saw them released on one album for the first time.  It was released 2 years after the Nolans had left the Target label. The most upsetting and misleading detail from this album is the ommision of Denise from the front and back cover, and the inclusion of Coleen who did not record a single word on the album.

The first of The Nolans albums to be released on CD in the UK. One song (Something Tells Me) replaced 'Money Money Money' the rights payments that the writers (Benny & Bjorn from ABBA) would recieve were too high to justify on a budget priced album, so it was replaced,
