  1. Hello Dave Sez! I am astonished you did not recognize Song one being Breakdown (with little lyrics changes) and Song 13 is acually Come again,wheras 9 is something else!

  2. Thanks for the heads-up, Bodhi Amol - I was in a rush to get this one out as it was only available for a week and hadn't done more than dip in to check the quality ... only 24 hours in a day unfortunately ;-). Now to turn my attention to what no. 9 might be ... cheers, Dave Sez.

  3. Track 9 is a version of "Take Another Little Piece of My Heart", a song made famous by Janis Joplin and Dusty Springfield (among others, I'm sure...)
