Note On the sleeve:
These recordings are culled trom four albums spanning
the period from 1973 to 1977. They represent the most
"main- stream" trend of my work—the line that runs 
out of Roxy Music at one hand and into my collabora-
tions with Bowie, Devo, David Byme, and Talking Heads
at the other. This collection is there- fore by no 
means a cross section—it is an edge of my work that 
others tend to regard as the center. Even in terms of
my songs (which constitute only 155 of the nearly 600
minutes of music I have released) this is not a 
typical collection: indeed given the idiosyncratic 
nature of the pieces, it is hard to know how such a
selection should be constituted.  
Chronologically, the sequence of these recordings is
as  follows: 
HERE COMES THE WARM JETS—1973, 
TAKING TIGER MOUNTAIN—1974, 
ANOTHER GREEN WORLD— 1975, 
BEFORE AND AFTER SCIENCE—1976-77.
On re-lis- tening to this material I find that rather
than it having become dated, many of the stylistc 
innovations which initially appeared rather odd have
 since become the currency of what is now vaguely 
referred to as "new wave music". Since my interest 
has shifted away from this area of music, any pride I
might feel in this contribution is mingled with 
considerable consternation.
