Notes

Flowmotion edition was limited to around 60 copies. Issued by Flowmotion magazine.

Ding Dong edition was limited to 1000 copies, some with slightly different and hand-coloured covers.
This collection is a re-release of a cassette album originally issued by Flowmotion magazine. Additional tracks “Voices” and “Dying For The Emperor” were part of the long-deleted Chemical Playschool 1 & 2 double cassette. The additional track “Love Puppets” was re-mixed at Ding Dong’s.

Track B3 is actually comprised of “Oceans of Emotion” and the unlisted “Small Anthem”. The latter appears as a separate track on Under Triple Moons which collects tracks from this and other early cassette releases.

Terminal Kaleidoscope edition
is unverified, it may have been planned but never issued.

235 Tapes bootleg edition is missing part of “Love Puppets”.

Mirrordot edition has a different cover and does not list “Love Puppets”, although it does appear on the cassette.
Most of this material appears on the anthology CD release “Under Tripple Moons”.  All (most?) tape copies of early Legendary Pink Dots cassettes with proper artwork that does not mention any label were released by Mirrordot.

Jarmusic edition Numbered and limited to 50 copies.

Bandcamp/CDr remastered editions recreate the original Flowmotion track list, but using other tapes a source.  It brings back “Before the End” in place of “Voices” but keeps the bonus track “Love Puppet (version 1)” from the later editions.  In part 1, the song “Odd” (between”Before the End” and “Premonition 1”) is omitted from the song listing but present in the track.

from Bandcamp
“Premonition” was created when The Dots were still wet behind the ears but had just undergone their first major change in line-up.  Founder members April and Phil briefly stepped out of the band while Michael Marshall returned and Roland Callaway and drummer Keith Thompson stepped into the frame to join Edward Ka-Spel. The result is a true rollercoaster ride with Michael’s epic songwriting and guitar playing at the forefront (“Oceans of Emotion”, “Amphitheatre”…) and some seriously wild effects, courtesy of Pat Bermingham’s Space Echo. One exception is: Before The End” which featured the first LPD line-up with April providing keyboards fed through the recently purchased Yamaha CS30, and Phil chiming in with a lead line on the Dots’ first keyboard (the Korg MS10).
While there is admittedly quite some duplication with “Chemical Playschool Volumes 1 & 2”, this early tape album stands up in it’s own right as quite a unique trip.
This cassette album was first released by the Flowmotion label in 1982 (though with a fault in duplication causing it to play a little too fast).
Subsequent editions replaced “Before The End” with “Voices’ but this 2014 edition reverts to the original while retaining “Dying For The Emperor” and “Love Puppets (version 1)” – a bonus track added to edition 2

CDr edition of 199.

Vinyl on Demand edition notes

Shakesperian is a lost song from 1985
