Tracks A1, A2 recorded at the Salle Bataclan Paris in May 1973 on Uher Stereo off the mixer.
Track A3 recorded at Edinburgh Festival in September 1973 on 8-track mobile, breathlessly after a flying dash by sea, road & rail from the middle of France.
Tracks B1 to B3 recorded at Club Arc-En-Ciel, Roanne in August 1973 on Manor Mobile 24-track (before breathless flying dash by road, rail & sea, etc.).
Track B4 recorded at Manor Studio, Oxfordshire in June 1973 – a one-off attempt at Daevid’s idea of a Top 40 hit single – previously unreleased.
Tracks C1 to C4 recorded live at BBC Studios, January 1974. Released by arrangement with BBC records & tapes.
Track C5 – Another abortive single attempt – incomplete (guitar solo missing). Recorded at Manor Studio, Oxfordshire at the end of the “YOU” sessions.
Tracks D1 to D4 recorded live at the Marquee Club, September 1975 on the Manor Mobile. Three sweaty, sweltering, sardine tin nights with the line-up later to divide whilst recording SHAMAL – the first post-pixie product.
