Owen Keenan The first X recordings from the original line-up - features an absolutely mind-blowing version of Good On Ya Baby which is exclusive to this EP (and other versions of it) and has never been on CD (to my knowledge). The other three tracks are also pretty rare, but were released on various Aberrant label compilations over the years.


This is an EP recorded around 1977-78 by the original X line up.
Vinyl ownley.
It is was recorded on 24 track, 2" tape (yes, the old fashioned way) at the Australian Film and Television School deluxe studio.I did a run of 500 to take to the USA in 2010 as a collectors item. Have found some remainders of the run so now's your chance to grab a piece of history


released November 19, 2014
