Culled from a performance at the Town and Country Club on November 13, 1986, on the Piece By Piece tour, Foundations is only an average document of a Martyn live show. Despite the inclusion of three tracks ("The Apprentice," "Send Me One Line," "Deny This Love") that were new and unreleased at the time, the performance borders on the dull, and those looking for an introduction to the live Martyn would be better off getting Live at Leeds or Philentropy. A videotape of the show was also released, which added three additional songs ("Solid Air," "Dealer," "Sweet Little Mystery").
