No vinyl here, but a cool set of b-sides. Three CDs, released separately, but the first one came in a fold-out pack designed to hold all three. Tracks:

  • On a Rope
  • Alone
  • Who Needs You
  • Young Livers (Mark Radcliffe Session)
  • On a Rope (Live from the White Room)
  • Allergic Reaction
  • Transcendent Crankiness
  • Suit City (Mark Radcliffe Session)
  • On a Rope (live)
  • You and I
  • Don't Darlene (Mark Radcliffe Session - and, incidentally, the best version of this song ever recorded)
  • Lorna Doom (Mark Radcliffe Session)

There were also a couple of one-song promo CDs that were not very interesting. All of the above are common and inexpensive.
