    Side Two is as good as anything on the Obscure series. Listen to Robert Wyatt's wonderful falsetto on Side Two......

      This release, unlike the previously posted as obscure no. 5 on Discogs, has both obscure no. 5 on spine and back cover, and OBSCURE 5 on labels. Also, it has island records in red on bottom of labels, and there is no mention of publishing rights societies MCPS and BRITICO.
