Track 8 is an excerpt from "The Garden Of Love" performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London 26/09/70 and recorded from a BBC radio broadcast.

Track 10 may not be Kevin Ayers at all.

This information is accurate as far as I can ascertain. However, I have cross-referenced three separate sources and each one shows slight differences.
