"slagiatt" was launched in 1996 through the fan clubs "Chronicles"
in the USA and "Jackdaw" in the UK; unlike the the 'unofficial' fan
club CDs, it did have a jewel box, sleeve notes - and a copyright notice.
this came out, it created great excitement among the fans; new albums were getting
scarce, and while most of these tracks were recorded years before 1996, few even
knew they existed. And they're great tracks, mostly, though an odd mixture.
the time, it was claimed to be an'official' album - but during the 2006-7 rereleases,
it was dismembered, and many of the tracks added to other albums as 'bonus tracks',
in an attempt to get loyal fans to buy new copies of albums they already owned.
The tracks were described as 'previously unreleased tracks, which is, of course,
not true in 2007, though it was true in 1996.
