1995 Bootleg CD The Early Years 1959-1969 on BEEF MUSIC BF-5969, EEC is a superb 71 mins trawl thru' mostly rare and unreleased stuff from the A&M, Buddah and early Straight periods - starting off with pre-Magic Band cuts ``Whirlpool'', ``Maltshop'' and ``Metal Man''. All 5 of the Avalon Ballroom 1966 broadcast cuts including the brilliant ``Blues Jam'' absent from the 4 track Boot EP. Then the alternate version of the '66 A&M``Out of the Frying Pan'', the Chuck Berry cover ``Almost Grown'', the slow version of the `67 Buddah ``Call On Me'', the John Peel BBC Radio One session version of ``Sure Nuff'', then onto ``WRAPPER'' cuts from late '67 with an acetate version of ``Moody Liz'' and the one track missing off Sequel's CD - ``Korn Ring Finger.''. There are fantastic highlights of the early '69 non-studio Trout Mask Rehearsal Tape including the full throttle recording of ``China Pig'' with Don Vliet singing ``Candy Man'' to Doug Moon's guitar - final track is ``Well Well Well'' sung by Rockette Morton!
