The Dandelion Sampler 1969-1972

Babe Ruth (??) from Cincinnati emailed to ask why "Time" on the 1996 See For Miles Dandelion sampler didn't appear on the original "Beau" album.

I honestly don't know! I don't even remember recording the song at CBS, and when Colin Miles included it as the only "previously unreleased" track on this rather bizarre disc, I was as surprised as anybody.

I can only think it must have been accidentally overlooked and ended up at the back of a cupboard somewhere. But at least it surfaced in the end!

(Incidentally, "Time" has now had a rather more mainstream release as a bonus track on Cherry Red's and Air Mail Archive's "Beau" reissues...)
