The TVP's split up in 1982 after five years as D.I.Y. pioneers, but only to reform three months later.

The split was marked by the mysterious compilation "They Could Have Been Bigger Than The Beatles".

An unannotated collection of alternative versions of tracks from their first two albums, early singles, and unreleased outtakes, this should by all rights be a complete mess.

Highlights include the classic "Three Wishes", a much-improved new version of "David Hockney's Diaries" and the gentle freakbeat of "The Boy in the Paisley Shirt" and "Games For Boys".

"Their quality and stature remains undiminished even after all these years. Indispensable".
