Releases in Question
Hucklebuck #7 - HNIA - Believed to be contained fully
on King of Sweet

New Stars New Tongue - HNIA - One Song on King of

Blissfield, Mouth - HNIA - 3 songs on King of Sweet

Emergency LP - ? - This was slated for release through
4AD but never happened.

The 13 YI video supposedly has an alternate, exclusive
version of one of
the songs--can't recall which and I don't know if
that's really true.

4AD Shaving the Pavement cassette has a track called
'ESP Summer' which I'm told is different from "Summer
of ESP"--again, I'm not sure about that.
