Notes

Single sleeve. Includes inner gatefold lyrics/credits sheet.

This version has the hidden track also present in first presses and first CD and then it was missed until reissues after the "Definitive Edition Remaster". It lasts 1:36 and begins about 1 min. after the end of 'Islands' side B. It is an excerpt from a 'Prelude: Song of the Gulls' studio session (R. Fripp talking and ensemble tuning sounds). You can hear Fripp saying: "...What we're going to do, umm... do it twice more, once with the oboe, once without it, and then... we finish."

Recorded at Command Studios, Piccadilly, London.

    Excellent, powerful, deep and clear sound. Another example of the high standards of Spanish late 70s COFASA pressings.
