Annotation

This recording originally appeared as Piper 1989 with catalogue number CD/ON 2341 and CD matrix F.DISC ONCD 2341 1439-B.
When included in this 3-CD box set, the overall cat no. is ON/CD 2355, but the CD matrix is unchanged.

Note that the sleeve notes have incorrect titles for these tracks, which are curiously not split up conventionally into one song per track. The bass solo and jam are not mentioned at all.
