The unnamed track was meant to be Movement 3, which was only available on the test pressing and removed from the final version for copyright reasons. They removed the title for Movement 3 from the back sleeve, but its duration was still listed, with a blank space between Blane and Movement 4.

According to the liner notes for the 2003 reissue, the master tapes for Movement 3 had to be destroyed once it was found that Egg were potentially plagiarising Igor Stravinsky's work. In 2002, a mint condition copy of the test pressing was found and it was discovered to have Movement 3 on it, which was promptly ripped and tweaked for maximum sound quality.
