Thanks Motorways - you always go the extra mile - downloading it now :)



J'en ai marre
Have I missed something? What are these? I can't download it at the moment. I assume they're all BBC sessions, but it seems strange that they didn't compile the ones that have not seen an official release. PJLM page here.

Here's an interesting piece suggesting that it's not unofficial. The address on the bottom is actually the address of a petrol station. Weird.

Front cover.
Back cover.
I thought that too.

Weird all the "might be Warner Bros" stuff. Wish they'd do a CD release of the Demos/Instrumentals one :)


what are all these tapes then? have they all been released?
