- This comes from a large box of tapes that I bought from eBay. It's described on the label as Rough Mixes but some of these songs have click tracks on them so maybe this might be more correctly described as rehearsals. None of these versions have appeared on any of the other outtakes that have been in circulation for many years.


- There was a low level buzz which been removed.
- The first track was "Who Do You Love" which I've excluded as it has nothing to do with "Shady Grove"
