Release Notes:
This collection gathers all the pre-The Modern Dance recordings - the four Hearpen 45s and the unreleased 'Untitled.' The original 45-release mixes of 'Street Waves' and 'Modern Dance' are included. Remixes of these two recordings were released on 'The Modern Dance.'

The analog 1/4" 2-track mix masters from 1975 to 1977 were digitally transferred by Paul Hamann at Suma at a 192khz / 24 bit resolution. The resultant digital files were mastered by Brian Pyle.
