1 - 8 recorded 1974 in 4 days at Kaleidophon Studios London. All the pieces were improvised, some completely and some to a roughly preconceived idea. No overdubs were used, the music is heard at is was played except for No Birds, which was made in two parts, and Not Forgotten, from which we removed two notes. The only sounds not produced 'naturally' by guitar or prepared guitar area those of the fuzz-box used on track A4, B3 and B4, and echo delay used on track B4. The extraneous noises on Heat c/w Moment are those made by my breath and feet while I was playing. The middle part of No Birds was played on two guitars simultaneously. [Originally released as Guitar Solos.]

9 and 10 recorded at Newman's barge (Argonaut Studio) in 1976 and originally released as part of Guitar Solos 2.

11, 12 and 13 recorded October 1978 at Briollay, France with the help of Jean-Paul Bossard and his Revox tape machine, "Song Of River Nights" was performed on one guitar by three people - thanks to Isabelle and Eude Bulard for cotton reel assistance. Originally released as part of Guitar Solos 3.

14 - 18 recorded at Noise New York, September 1988. [Previously unreleased.]
