Notes:
‘Nine in a Pond is Here’ is a double ‘official bootleg’ vinyl album sold at gigs and by mail order in 1985. It contained three sides of rehearsals with Paul Menel recorded in October 1985 and was released to give the fans a chance to hear the new singer and also to raise some much needed funds for the band. The fourth side was a collection of humorous and wacky songs and instrumentals, some of which were originally included on Mike Holmes' ‘Bake Me Beauty’ cassette... “Most of the stuff on side 4 pre-dates all IQ releases, including ‘Seven Stories into Eight’.
In 1991 a bootleg vinyl version of the album (under the title ‘Live Revelation’) was released and shortly after MSI put out a CD version that omitted the fourth side.

As far as I remember the silver disc version came out a few month before the picture disc version.

I bought the MSI CDs when they came out in '89, and the version I purchased of Nine In A Pond was the pic disc, so I am very skeptical that this silver version is the original issue.
