10 - the bass part is extracted from a four track master of a performance from Goteborg, Sweden 1974 which I had Patrick O'Hearn overdub on a medium tempo guitar solo track in 4/4. The noted chosen were more or less specified during the overdub session, and so it was not completely an improvised "bass solo". A year and a half later, the bass track was peeled off the Swedish master and transferred to one track of another studio 24 track master for a slow song in 11/4. The result of this experimental re-synchronization (the same technique was used on the Zoot Allures album in "Friendly Little Finger") is the piece you are listening to. All of the sensitive, interesting interplay between the bass and drums never actually happened… also note, the guitar solo section of the song "Yo' Mama" on side four was done the same way.
11 - basic track recorded live at Deutschland Halle, Berlin; over-dubs: none. This selection and "Rat Tomago" were recorded on a portable four track Scully. The sound quality is not as clear as other parts of the album, but what the fuck…

17 - basic track recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London; over-dubs: lots
18 - basic track for vocal sections and middle of guitar solo were recorded live at the Odeon Hammersmith, London; guitar solo is from a four track recording made in some little town outside of Nurnberg that I can't remember the name of; over-dubs: lots.
