With no published list of the tracks sampled, and between 2000 and 4000 tracks being sampled in this work, no amount of "contains samples from" Advanced Relationships could ever hope to be complete for this release. Samples are utilized at the rate of 5 or more per second, with many appearing multiple times.

Suffice to say, however, if you look at any big-name American or Canadian top 100 list from 1980 through 1990, chances are pretty good that every track from the list is represented... somewhere... in this composition. John Oswald's intent for this work was that the listener always remain just on the edge of recognition.
