Producer:

Vocals, Guitar
Organ, Bass, Guitar (Tracks 1-5)
Drums (Tracks 1-5)
Guitar (Tracks 1-5)

John Walters (Tracks 1-5)

 

Tracks 1-5: recorded for BBC Radio 1's John Peel show at Studio 4, Maida Vale, London, England on 24 February 1970
and first broadcast on 24 February 1970
Tracks 6-8: from a Bob Harris session on 16 February 1971 but were recorded off the radio: the label says: "The version included here comes from an off-air recording and is therefore of inevitably poor quality, imbuing the three songs with a darker feel than the first set."
