Notes: This boot is the one noted in the Discography entry for the "real", initially reported Philosophers' Stone) release.

The track list for this one is exactly the same as for the Israeli CD-R named The Philosophers Stone and on both the track "Lover's Prayer" is omitted (track 10 disc one), presumably due to time constraints of the CD-R format.

Disk has the subtitle "An Anthology of previously unreleased studio outtakes from 1971 to 1978" - this is obviously an error and should be "to 1988". Track notes in italics are as they appear on the liner. There are no inner liner notes.
