LINER NOTES

(jump to: Credits)

The first thing that struck me while working on this album was what a good album it makes. It has been a while since I listened to these versions but I was struck by what I was hearing. Although the sessions are a bit of a blur in my memory, i remember the feelings I initially had about the songs. The ones that never made it onto commercial albums are still grand and I am pleased that they will at last get to be heard. The songs that are more familiar still work for me in their un-produced state and demonstrate how good they were in their infancy. This album has also evoked some bizarre memories. TB

I still find it amazing that every time I go into my attic studio I always come across more and more dusty old Ampex boxes filled with open reel tapes. Tony is right when he says it evokes some bizarre memories. All those studios in the middle of nowhere where we would set up camp and get into song writing mode. All the visits to the local country pubs where we would plan out future strategies, discuss newly written songs and relive war stories from previous tours. God I can even remember which TV shows we were watching and what comedy tapes we were listening to back then. These songs are the third installment in what had turned out to be a fascinating history lesson and the more tape boxes I come across will, I'm sure evoke even more memories. Bruce
