Due to the age of the tapes and methods of recording or transfer, some defects remain, although all detectable clunks, glitches, drop-outs and volume drops have been repaired where possible. The recordings have also been marginally EQ'd and enhanced for the best possible sound versus unwanted tape hiss and noise.

This release collects all the known live recordings of Kevin O'Neill during the 1980s, all at prestigious events that we at Ultima Thule attended. The "Electronica" events were recorded professionally by the organisers. Those previously appeared on the cassette edition. However, the masters for that had been lost, so other sources had to be located, now resulting in quality superior to the original tape. The other concert was recorded by me (Alan Freeman) in the audience with a portable stereo cassette recorder, which wasn't ideal what with the creaky audience seating and sundry noises, but I managed to make it sound reasonably good. The other bonus track comes from a various artists release on Kevin O'Neill's label called "Myths Of Far And Near" in between Keviin's first and second tapes, which hadn't got a home, but fits here quite nicely!
