Notes

Dave Bascombe told Super Deluxe Edition in July 2019:

"Well, ['Agent Orange'] particularly had loads of space in it and I was thinking about that the other day. I was going through some tracks, it's one of those that was so good [you would think] that it should go on the album, but it is merely a B-side. That's what makes B-sides great, they can be that empty and sparse."
