Danger Money is the second album by the group U.K., featuring John Wetton, Eddie Jobson and Terry Bozzio. It was released by E.G. Records / Polydor in March 1979. "The Only Thing She Needs", "Caesar's Palace Blues" and "Carrying No Cross" had been performed on tour throughout 1978 (and an early version of "Carrying No Cross" included what became the intro to the title track) by the band's original line-up with Bill Bruford and Allan Holdsworth. From the session of the album, a new version of "In The Dead Of Night" was recorded, and was released as the B-side of the singles taken from the album. This "new" version has yet to appear on any CD release. "Rendezvous 6:02" and "Nothing to Lose" were both edited for single release.
