«*Happiness Now Completed» beside original album features ten brand new Marc Almond and Dave Ball tracks, plus unreleased mixes, remixes and single-only tracks. The new 78-minute set fits snugly into to the rear section of the original «*Happiness Not Included» CD book format, with no versions on the vinyl duplicated on the CD.

The album also includes a newly re-recorded version of fan favourite «Last Chance», with the addition of a full brass section, plus cover versions of Fad Gadget’s «Back To Nature» and X-Ray Spex’s «The Day The World Turned Day Glo». Lead track «First Hand Experience in Second Hand Love» was originally recorded by Giorgio Moroder, a huge influence on Soft Cell.
