                    This CD, "compiled, produced, and edited by Terry Leskewich and John Wood," features unreleased songs, a couple of unreleased (live) versions of songs and a couple of released but rare versions of songs. They're from the 70's, 80's, and 90's and most of 'em are live recordings.


                    "Watch What You're Doing" has an extra verse (about an unfaithful woman; the one about Little Joe Billy is not on this version).


                    The original booklet says "Standing At The Crossroads" is from 1995. This should be 1985; it's corrected on the second pressing of the booklet. This song has a Jimi Hendrix like intro (subtitle for this song as given in the booklet: "Ghost Of Jimi Mix") and has some references to "Johnny B. Goode" (a Chuck Berry song). The title was taken from the legendary Robert Johnson song "Crossroad Blues", but the way it's performed here, was obviously inspired by Eric Clapton's version of this song as done by The Cream (1968). The words are different though.


                    See "Live At Flevo" for more details on "Twist And Shout."


                    According to the GM booklet "Twist and Shout" and "Unlucky Blues" are from 1988. These tracks also appeared on the 4CD set "Rough Diamonds, Precious Jewels (The Belfast Bootlegs)" where they are dated 5 May 1987. I assumed that this information is more accurate and that's why 1987 is given in the song listing above.


                    There's a CD-R released by Terry Leskewich which is without "Parson Brown" and features a full-length version of "Talkin 'Bout Love" (from some hotel tapes of Larry Norman with his son Michael). The ending of "If I Were A Singer" has a complete fade out which is different from the common version.


                    A follow-up release of "Gathered Moments" has been announced and then postponed. This CD might contain covers of Woody Guthrie ("Jesus Christ"?) and Bob Dylan tunes amongst other unreleased material.
