Yes. They do have bonus tracks NOT on "Fuzzy Warbles" one track that IS on
the "Warbles" set included here is "Open a Can of Human Beans".

We also get a couple of Colin's demos.

It's a terrific set nicely packaged and bound in a small hardcover book. The
sound is a huge improvement on the 2001 remasters with better dynamic range,
nice EQ, etc.

It's also better than the original CD release except it is a tiny bit louder
by comparison.

Buy it now! Support Andy, Colin and Dave.

Oh, and the notes by all three are great!

Yep -- there are some.  Some we've heard on different sources ("Nicely
Nicely Jane", "Tin Toy Clockwork Train"), and some Colin demos
(including the alternate of Vanishing Girl, "No One At Home", and the
different-lyric version of "What In The World..??").

The complete list of bonus tracks are (taken from Reel by Real):

	 25 O'Clock (demo) [Fuzzy 2]
	 Bike Ride to the Moon (demo) [Fuzzy 6]
	 My Love Explodes (demo) [fuzzy 6]
	 What in the World??... (demo) [EXCLUSIVE]
	 Nicely, Nicely Jane (demo) [EXCLUSIVE -- but I coulda sworn it was
on one of the tape comps like "Bull with the Golden Guts"]
	 Susan Revolving (demo) [EXCLUSIVE -- but ditto, actually]
	 Black Jewelled Serpent Of Sound (Radio Caroline Edit) [EXCLUSIVE]
	 Open A Can (Of Human Beans) [According to RBR, it's the Fuzzy 7
version, not the Charity version from "The Wish List"]
	 Tin Toy Clockwork Train [EXCLUSIVE/only released on promo single in
	 The Mole From the Ministry (video)

	 No One At Home (demo) [Vanishing Girl demo; EXCLUSIVE]
	 Little Lighthouse (demo) [Jules Verne's Sketchbook/Fuzzy 3]
	 Collideascope (demo) [Fuzzy 3]
	 Shiny Cage (demo) [EXCLUSIVE]
	 Brainiac's Daughter (demo) [Fuzzy 4]
	 The Affiliated (demo) [EXCLUSIVE]
	 You're a Good Man, Albert Brown (Curse You Red Barrel) (video)

BTW -- for some reason, I've only been able to read Chalkills on the
web -- haven't had any digests sent to me... anyone else having that

Over at the XTCfans MySpace site (, the
song of the week is "Ball and Chain."
