The first five hundred copies of this Album only had one side of music contained on them ,all the sleeves where hand cut from re-cycled cardboard. The opening track was three minutes of complete silence, the compilation was the brainchild of Carl Davies – Carl appears on the album under the name’ The Harts’ but insisted that his tracks went on the album backwards! The final track on the side was ‘The Time I grew Forever’ by Roy.G.Biv-the first release by Mike Badger ,it is a poem set to a piece of music by Leroy Anderson called the Syncopated clock.
