Hey Chuck,

I wasn't even aware of these expanded versions of "Back Street Crawler" and "Fire And Water". That's what happens when ICE magazine, my main source of CD release information, vanishes into the ether.

I did a quick check on Amazon UK to get the song line-ups. The Kossoff album gets the full treatment and you can now savor the Olympian workout that was "Time Away" without having to drop a hundred bucks on the "Songs Of Yesterday" box set. They put that entire John Martyn session on there..completists rejoice!

And Free basically cut "Fire And Water" twice; If I recall correctly Chris Blackwell wasn't happy with the first version and had the band remix the album. Add some BBC tracks and live sessions and four different versions of "All Right Now" and you have a stocking stuffer of the highest order!

Bring on the FUNK!!!
