With the lead vocal on the A-side by George, this was the first track recorded for the album in April 1988 in California. The 10" (pictured above), 12" and C.D. version have an extended version of "Handle With Care". The L.P. version was 3:20, whereas this extended version is almost two minutes longer at 5:16.

In October the band shot a video for "Handle With Care" in Los Angeles which is directed by David Leland and Produced by Limelight films.
