No production credits are listed for the bonus tracks. The production credits are inconsistent throughout several releases of this album: Compare the original US Polydor release and the [url=">re-release on Bronze Records[/url]. The exact split of the producer responsibilities is unknown, but most likely as follows:
Manfred Mann/Dave Hadfield: Tracks 2, 3, 6 to 8, 10
David Mackay: Tracks: 1, 4, 9
Ambiguous info: Track 5 (but believed to be produced by Mann/Hadfield as it seems to be more consistent).
