Track Listing

File a

(JP: 'Tonight, we were going to have two sessions, one of them by Stretchheads, that's a repeat, and a new one from Nirvana. Unfortunately, the tapes of the Nirvana sessions seem to have gone walkabout, and I've chased all over the building trying to find them, but as yet have not managed to come up with them, so perhaps there's no Nirvana session tonight. But there will be the Stretchheads, and of course any number of exhilarating records.')
