Notes on the original tentative tracklisting that was posted on GBV message board on May 21st, 2009:

Original tentative tracklisting had "Trader Vic" and "Perch Warble" listed with question marks and no band name, so it seems those track selections were still up in the air. "Smothered In Hugs (4-Track Version" ended up replacing "Perch Warble".

Fake Band Name changes from original tentative tracklisting:

  • "Axtual Sectivity" was attributed to "Radiation Feeder Is A Badass Breeder" instead of "Cubscout Bowling Pins"
  • "Class Clown Spots A UFO" was attributed to "Royal Canadian Custard" instead of "Royal Canadien Mustard".
  • "Dibble" was attributed to "Quote A 2 People" instead of "10 Second Coma".
  • "It's The Song" was attributed to "The Uncool Clouds" instead of "Knuckles And MacDougal".
  • "Mainstay" was attributed to "The Danglions" instead of "Angel And The Alley Oops".
  • "A Kind Of Love" was attributed to "Wonderful Ice Cubes" instead of "Basic Switches".
  • "Naked Believer (I Am)" was attributed to "Stodge Griffin" instead of "Curtis E. Flush".
  • "Rough Tracks" was attributed to "Necklace Of Warts" instead of "Psyclops".
  • "Dibble 2" was attributed to "Quit A 2 People" instead of "Aerial Poop Show".
  • "Sonny The Monster" was attributed to Bruce Smitty Smih" instead of "Bruce Smitty Smith".
  • "Fly Away (Tommy Sez)" was was attributed to "Blain Hazel" instead of "Blaine Hazel".
  • "Poison Shop" was attributed to "Heartthrob Johnson Firestone" with two t's instead of "Hearthrob Johnson Firestone".

Song title changes from the original tentative tracklisting:

  • "Kotex Moon" was listed as "Kotex Bliss".
  • "Troopers In The Town" was listed as "Troopers In The Tower".
  • "Escape From Kama Loka" was listed as "Escape From Karma Loka".
  • "Hi, I'm Kelsey" was listed as "Hi, I'm Like Kelsey".
  • "Vagabond Lover" was listed as "Vagabond Lovers".
  • "Old Engine Driver" was listed as "Old English Driver".
  • "Axtual Sectivity" was listed as "Actual Sectivity".
  • "Class Clown Spots A UFO" was listed as "Class Crown Sports A UFO".
  • "Fly Away (Tommy Sez)" was listed as "Fly Away (Terry Sez)".
  • "Fireking Says No Cheating" was simply listed as "Fireking".
  • "Tough Skin River" was listed as "Though Skin River".
  • "Hairspray Lies" was listed as "Hairspray Lize".
  • "I Shot A Jezebel" was listed as "I Just Shot A Jezebel".
  • "Evil Vandalia/Mojo Crow Zenith" was listed as "Evil Vandalia/Mojo Crow".
  • "Oh Pie" was listed as "Oh Ped".
  • "Rapheal Muzak" was listed as "Rachel Muzak"
(some of these appear to be just typos and others were actual changes between initial tracklisting and final release).

Original Disc Name differences from original tentative tracklisting:

  • Disc 10 was listed as "I Can't Think Yeah" instead of "I Can't Think...Yeah".
  • Disc 11 was listed as "Up We Go Now: Thou Shall Red The Wheel" instead of "Thou Shall Read The Wheel".
  • Disc 12 was listed as "Guided By Voices - Tall Take Moon (Antiquated) and Other Known Facts Spontaneous Lo-Fly Energy Field Recordings" instead of "Guided By Voices - Tall Tale Moon (Antiquated) and Other Known Facts - Spontaneous Lo-Fly Field Recordings".

Original tracklisting notes on the last disc:

The last disc was subtitled "Controlled Acoustic Jams 1994 : Between the Recordings of Bee Thousand And Alien Lanes" with acoustic guitars and backing vocals by Tobin Sprout and Greg Demos except the first 2 songs and last 3 songs on that disc. Greg Demos credited as lead vocalist on "Tough Skin River". The first 2 songs and last 2 songs on the last disc are listed as Robert Pollard demos for Alien Lanes.
