Liner notes: Special thanks to Colin Thurston, Phil Collins, Eric Clapton and George Harrison who by their help and company made this record not unworthy of the perusal of most listeners.

'And I wish the reader also to take notice that in writing of it, I have made a recreation of a recreation; and that it may prove so to thee in the reading' (Izaak Walton, The Compleat Angler)

"I have this 4-track album sampler from Lead Me To The Water with the songs Mineral Man, Another Way, Hang On Rose, and The Cycle," writes Tormod Ringvold.

"As these are the album versions, this promotional copy is not THAT interesting, but playing at 33 1/3 and with the catalogue number
MER DJ 94 (The Cycle (Let It Flow) / Badlands -single has number MER 94), I think it's a nice item."

Thanks, Tormod
