I agree wholeheartedly re Knockabout should have been a lead single for Dog as it's defo more representative of album but am I not right in saying that Bobby wasn't actually a single but more an instant grat? There was no singles for Dog?

100% should have been the Lead single, it’s very radio friendly too, I remember hearing it in radio while driving, it’s just nice optimistic cute pop song...

Again I agree. There were several teasers prior to the release of IANADOAC, and then there finally was the album. But none of these 3 tracks released before the album ever felt like a real single because there never wasn't any promotion and I didn't hear them on the radio and there was no video and so on. Spent The Day In Bed was probably his last real single, and while enjoyable, most songs on Dog are definitely better and Bobby is far superior.
Jackie, My Love and All The Young People all got the official 7inch single treatment after Spent from LIHS as did Wedding Bell Blues and latterly It's Over from Cali Son but nothing really felt like a proper single from Dog and I don't really recall any of the songs being described fully as 'singles'.

Always liked Dagenham Dave as a strong lead single for Southpaw. Catchy Hammerhead Pop. Alma is larger than life. It still is, after 23 years.
