Commentary
A studio recording - with Lucy Rimmer providing lead vocals. One of only a handful of tracks without MES’s vocals. Obviously an outtake as it only appeared on the Receiver issues in its original studio form.  Probably recorded at the same sessions that produced "Light User".

The song first appeared on the Idle Race's debut album "The Birthday Party" in 1968. Recognised as a psychedelic classic at the time the album was only the second album after "Sgt Pepper" to have a gatefold sleeve.
