FROM THE LINER NOTES:
Throughout most of the recording sessions for The Sky Moves Sideways the plan was that the album would contain only the title track as one 50 minute long piece of music. A version of this length was never completed, but the alternate version here is a work in progress mix that contains some music that was eventually cut from the final album, as well as an earlier set of lyrics.

Remastered 2003.

SIDE NOTE:
Suzanne Barbieri is credited for vocals on "The Sky Moves Sideways", but this credit applies only for Phase 2 and the Alternate Version of this song.

This release comes in a CD sized gatefold papersleeve with an Obi-strip, a full color booklet with lyrics/artwork in English and a black and white lyrics/info foldout in Japanese.
