This promotional disc issued to help promote the Everything's Alright Forever LP has three unreleased tracks. "Lazy Day," awhich is taken from the aforementioned LP, is the only song readily available on other releases. While certainly not a songwriting milestone, the hazy, blurred vocals on "Vegas" are definitely representative of the earliest Boo Radleys material. "Feels Like Tomorrow" is either a throwback to their garage-band days or may actually be from some of those earlier sessions caught on Learning to Walk and Ichabod and I. The sound and production are very raw, moreso than anything on Everything's Alright Forever or the later releases. The horns and thick layers of sound on "Whiplashed," although it lacks the great hooks abundant in so many of the Boo Radleys' songs of this era, make this a great complement to the LP this CD is meant to support.
