Rare Spanish promo single with a promotional cover released to promote Anthrax Spanish tour dates in October of 1990

The track Got The Time was written and performed by the British new wave/power pop musician Joe Jackson, appearing as the closing track on his 1979 debut album, Look Sharp!. Jackson dedicated the song to “anyone out there who leads a hectic life.” In the lyrics of the song, Jackson sings of a frantic lifestyle where he is constantly being encountered by new obligations and duties. The track was cover by Anthrax for their album, Persistence Of Time. This version was also released as a single by the band in 1990. The band’s version was cited by AllMusic writer Steve Huey as the “standout track” from Persistence Of Time but Jackson himself didn’t hold Anthrax’s version in high esteem. In the June 1991 issue of Q magazine, Jackson remarked: “I think it sounds kind of clumsy compared to the way we did it on the Live album. I mean, our version is really smoking. Theirs is actually slower than ours, and kind of lumpen. The way I feel about it is, Thanks for the royalties, guys.”
