2: from the Vlora region of Albania, recorded at the Gjirokastra Folk Festival, 1988.

3: A flight back from Tokyo in 1990 on ANA 201: one of the passengers alerted the cabin staff that a man was on the aircraft brandishing a toy gun. An hour later, on the flight deck and over Siberia, this recording was taken direct from the pilot's ATC receiver.

5: A short piece for answering machine, played back and forth over the phone between Amsterdam and London in January 1988.

6: Also previously unreleased, a new composition.

7: March the 9th, 1948, New Brunsiwick, Canada, time 08.23. Alfie, the controller, has less than 30 minutes in which to prevent Wesley's runaway train from derailment into a built-up area. The drama unfolds and the protagonists perform like male leads in a Hollywood film.

9: Much ahead of its time, a 23 minute track recorded for opening of the Haçienda in Manchester in 1982, and a blueprint for 'Blue Monday': it was published in 2 parts on the first Touch release, Feature Mist. This is the missing middle section.

10: Recorded in Peliatan in June 1983, the genggong is "The original sound of Bali", a strip of palm wood, about 30x2cm, with two strands carved out of it as the mouthpiece. It is not easy to play "frog sound"; Mr. Togog said modestly that he was getting too old for it, and after three demonstrations, he asked his son to helm him along.

15: Short wave radio manipulation.

19: Dry tropical forest, Costa Rica, 0615h 9th April 1995. Previously unreleased.

20: Kenya, 0210h 1st March 1996. Previously unreleased.
