Factory Records

Originally released on CD in Germany in 1992, CD versions have sold for as much £40 second hand some 20 years later. Now time to make it available to the world again. The first eight tracks on this are often considered more raw than the recordings on the 1971 Way We Live album as these were done in the preceding 12 months to that album's release of the same tracks - ie these are the original masters!!! A great selection of rare bonus tracks and an 8 page cd booklet with some rare images complete the package. Tracks 1 to 8 and 13 are recorded late 60's/early 70's at John Brierley's home studio on a mixing desk with no EQ on 2 track tape recorders (later to become Dandelion Studios, Rochdale and eventually Cargo Studios). Tracks 9 and 10 recorded 1977 by Cargo Studios Mobile. Tracks 11 and 12 Recorded 1974/75 at Tractor Sound Studios, Heywood. Track 14 Recorded 1980 by Cargo Studios Mobile.
