Blue Red And Grey

Recorded in May. This track features Pete singing solo accompanied by himself on ukulele, together with John on brass playing his own silver band arrangement. A group version of ‘Blue Red and Grey’ was also recorded but unfortunately the tapes of this have gone missing.

[Pete: "Glyn Johns wanted it on the album. I cringed when he picked it. He heard it on a cassette and said, ‘What’s that?’ I said, ‘Nothing.’ He said, ‘No. Play it.’ I said, ‘Really, it’s nothing. Just me playing a ukulele.’ But he insisted on doing it. I said, ‘What? That fucking thing? Here’s me wanting to commit suicide and you’re going to put that thing on the record?’"

This track was cross-faded into the track preceding it on the 1996 remix. They were completely separate on the original LP.]
