....As we have got yet another version of a lot of the tunes in our hands, and after talkin to Rod Cow about this very thing, I thought I would be nice to start a thread for everyone to compile their own personal favourite La's album from what we have got hold of over the years.

The tracklisting is from Mavers original album order list from Macey's book.

Mine is below - would be interesting to see what everyones list would be (if anyone can be bothered! haha)


Son Of Gun (Liz Kershaw session)
Freedom Song (Janice Long session)
Clean Prophet (GOLAS 3 B-side)
Come In Come Out (Japanese Singles)
Way Out (Nicky Campbell session)
Doledrum (John Porter mix)
There She Goes (Japanese Singles)
Feelin' (Bob Andrews mix)
Timeless Melody (GOLAS 3)
I.O.U. (Mike Hedges mix)
Over (Liz Kershaw session)
I Can't Sleep (Jeremy Allom mix)
Knock Me Down (Mike Hedges mix)
Liberty Ship (Japanese Singles demo)
Callin All (Mick Moss mix)
Failure (Original Album)
Looking Glass (Mike Hedges mix)
Who Knows (Japanese Singles)

Sorry, I completely missed Timeless Melody, for which I like the GOLAS 12" version.
