HEEPSTERS MAILING LIST RARITIES 1

These rare recordings come from several different sources. None of these have ever been officially released in any form

Tracks 1, 2, 5 & 6 recorded live in studio for BBC Radio. Heep recorded in total 12 songs for BBC in 1970 & 1971 but these are the only ones that have surfaced so far, it's unclear whether BBC still has the original tapes

Track 3 rare studio demo version

Track 4 recorded live in Berlin, Germany, December 1970. This song was played live in 1970 & 1971 but apparently never recorded. It's so rare that we donít even know the exact title

Tracks 7- 9 are taken from the In Concert TV show, recorded live in the U.S. 1973

Track 10 recorded live in ??, New Zealand 1974. This song was played live at least on this tour but apparently never recorded.

Track 11 recorded live in Wilkes Barre, PA 1982. Another unreleased song. A studio version of this song was recorded at the Ridge Farm sessions in 1981 exists but hasn't been released so far

Tracks 12 & 13 are out-takes from the Different World sessions 1990-1991. Powers Of Addiction (or Power's An Addiction as it also has been called) is an early version of Blood On Stone, lyrics and melody lines in choruses are different in this version. Winds Of Time is written by Trevor Bolder and hasn't been released officially

Track 14 recorded live in Nurnberg, Germany 1993. This song was first taped in 1992 on a demo tape that was made in search of a new record deal. Unlike the other songs on that demo tape, it didn't surface until a re-recorded version was released on Sonic Origami in 1998

Tracks 15 & 16 recorded at KISW Radio Studios, Seattle 1994 for Bob's Garage show
