Voulis... Important Records are re-issuing that boxset Ape of Naples - The New Backwards.. Hopefully I also can be able to get that Re-print... Note that vinyl of TNB is missing 3 songs - AYOR, Backwards & Fire Of The Green Dragon - Not sure if forthcoming re-issue is having those added... Prolly not... So I´d need TNB on Cd IF someone would sell it for reasonable price - hahhaa - also prolly not happening.

"Princess Margaret's Man In The D'jamalfna" is an alternate version/remix of "Egyptian Basses". The latter was never properly released (unfortunately) but widely available on the net (cf. Songs of the week). You can also find a video of it on Youtube (see above).
