Comments
  • a) From John Peel - Altered Images 81 mixtape from Mark, who comments: "features the Mighty Wah!/Wah Heat! who at this time were merely Wah! Many mentions of his impending trip to Paris to see Liverpool in European Cup Final and need for a holiday … having messed up plans by arranging to take the John Peel roadshow to East Kilbride!”.
  • b) Hinton Box recording concentrates on the Wah! session. Since both files are pause button edits, it is impossible to work out how they fit together. Some tracks appear on both.

Sessions

  • Wah!, #2 (rpt). Recorded 1981-03-30. No known commercial release.
  • Altered Images, #2 (rpt). Recorded 1981-03-02. No known commercial release.
