Notes

A collectors edition of "The Chameleons" second studio album, "What Does Anything Mean? Basically".

The 2 CD set contains a re-mastered version of the original album, plus a 9-track bonus disc featuring previously unreleased demo recordings. The demo tracks were recorded in 1984, immediately prior to the full album session and showcase the songs in their full, original intensity. Also contains a losttunes.com sheet to access additional music for download.

The discs are presented in either a standard slim double jewel case or a Super Jewel Box, with brand new artwork by Reg Smithies.

(Tracks 1-1 to 1-10) Recorded at Highland Studios, Inverness, Scotland. January 1985.
The demos featured on the bonus disc were recorded in Bridlington circa 1984.
The demo recordings were taken from Dave Fielding's original C60 cassette tape which was restored and digitally transferred.
