Also available on various other re-releases (CD: Line Records, 1984 (different cover art); Repertoire Records, 1992). More recent reissues sport different cover art. A rare version of "Caviar and Meths" exists, which is about 10 minutes long and has Al Atkins on vocals.

Many reissues of this album have another wrong splitting of the tracks "Winter", "Deep Freeze" and "Winter Retreat" starting and stopping at different places:
1. Winter (01:42)
2. Deep Freeze (01:20)
3. Winter Retreat (03:28)

Different versions of each track can be found on the "Hero, Hero" release which was remixed by Rodger Bain.

Recording information:

Recorded at Olympic, Trident and Island Studios, London during June/July 1974.
