This 2xLP set is a promotional radio program intended to be broadcasted on July 1, 1984. There are no track breaks and the program includes commercials. The D side is blank.

Furthermore, this "Best Of The Biscuit' set is a subsequent pressing of the material that was first pressed as Part 1 on the original 4 LP broadcast set, which included pre-broadcast D-Sides, which are absent from this release. The material contained on this 3 sided LP was recorded in Austin, Dallas and Houston during Plant's 'Principle Of Moments' tour in 1983.

    Once upon a time I had this set, hence I can verify that the song titles and A, B and C side segments are the same as the Part One LP's from the 1983 Texas set. As noted, the D is side blank on this pressing. The original Part One set included a special prebroadcast D side that is not included in this Best Of The Biscuit (rebroadcast). The Bill Minkin commentary also differs, but again the tunes are the same as the first 3 sides of the original Part 1 2LP set. Hopefully this information will be useful for those whom seek this title out. Superb material and performance on these slabs ;)
