The additional tracks are taken from various cassettes I have so the quality varies considerably. Lady Of The Evening was recorded in Ian’s living room in Cockatoo in September 1984. Pizza was taken from the original band demo, as was Crowded Road, recorded in November 1984. Harley Blues was recorded in Ian’s living room around 1988 during one of the album’s pre-production sessions. Walking On The Moon was recorded early in the album sessions in 1988 but was never developed. Chalk was one of the last recordings we did for the album in early 1989 and again was never developed.

Together this collection is the total of all recordings I have of Ian’s original songs.
