Other Information
An unofficial release, but one that managed to find its way into many high street record shops in the UK. Many of the alternate versions are sufficiently similar to the released ones that this functions very well as a Spacemen 3 “Best Of”, and it would not be a bad way to introduce newcomers to the band. Unlike other bootleg or semi-legitimate releases, this has not been picked up and officially reissued by Space Age Recordings.

The fantastic version of ‘Walkin’ With Jesus’ is from a 1987 rehearsal.
