Notes

Comes in a standard jewel case with 24 page booklet and originally came with a sticker on the jewel case saying "Dramatic New Version Digitally Remixed And Remastered".

A very similar release, Tales Of Mystery And Imagination, exists but which has some variations in the inlay, booklet and CD print.

[Recording details]
track 1, 3, 11: recorded at Abbey Road, August 1975.
track 2: recorded at Mama Jo's Studio, North Hollywood and at Abbey Road, April 1975.
track 4, 5: recorded at Abbey Road, September 1975.
tracks 6, 8, 10: recorded at Kingsway Hall, London on October 10, 1975.
tracks 7, 9: recorded at Abbey Road in August and November 1975.
track 7: thunder and storm effects recorded outside Abbey Road Studio Two during a freak storm, using a binaural 'Dummy' recording head.

The original multitrack masters were transferred from a Soundcraft "Saturn" analog machine to a Sony 3324 DASH format 24 track recorder. The album was partially re-recorded and remixed at "The Grange" via an Amek Angela console to a Sony 1630 system digital stereo master - May and June 1987.
