The bonus cd is a complete delusion, All songs besides "the Unknown" have been already released on official swans cd. The only exception is the "The unknown" which come from the cd "Live in Haltern 039" (recorded june 1988, soundboard recording) available on Jarboe web page.
Other live songs are Mother’s Milk and Amnesia (Live) from Omniscience, Blood On Your Hands and A Young Girl Needs (Excerpt) from Anonymous Bobies in an Empty Room.
PS. Most of the other songs (all studio recordings allready available on other swans official releases) have been edited and are shorter than the originals.
