Philips went all out to promote the solo work of the Walker Brothers to the Japanese market. To aid this process there was a series of 3 EP's assigned to each of the 'brothers' containing tracks pulled from their first 1968 gig as the Walker Brothers. This coincided with the release of the full concert on DLP. The EP's sold poorly as they were just duplicates of the album material. As such, finding any of the 3 EP's these days is incredibly difficult. The EP #1 I have never seen and can not confirm what's on it, but know it's assigned to Scott Walker. The #3 is assigned to John Walker SLF.3228 and contains Yesterday/ Reach Out I'll Be There/ Tell Me How Do You Feel and Watch Your Step.

These should not be confused with the 4 EP's in the "Best 4" series which are far more common and contain studio tracks from the various LP's. One of the joys of collecting and tracking down Japanese issues is the lack of information yet plethora of releases that totally saturated the market regardless of very poor sales.
