AllMusic Review by

A fringe collectible to be sure, this is an already rare four-song, seven-inch EP of mid-'60s outtakes. If you're interested enough in this group to collect them in the first place, though, odds are you'll want to track it down. It has alternate versions of "Story 16" (here retitled "Talk to Me"), "Lying All the Time," and "If You Don't Treat Me Right," the last of which is quite different from the official take, with its sluggish, uglier-than-hell guitar solo. "I Want to Know," a song never released by the group, is a typically jagged variation of the Pretty Things, and even more unpolished than most of the Outsiders' early output.
