'faith' was recorded in 2 lumps, the first sessions at WAVE studios in london were engineered by john mcgovern and comprise the first 4 tracks on this release. derek is not on these tracks and the synth on 'baby grenade' (our syd barrett homage) was played by chris. the second, 'machine' sessions were recorded and mixed at various places and the drumulator was programmed by chris and derek. on these later tracks the bass parts are played by derek on a minimoog and he also provides some other keyboard parts, especially on 'common feeling' and 'love goes hungry'. additional percussion is by piers. colin was absent for these recordings, but turned up again later. 'common feeling' was mixed twice and the drums were changed. it is the second mix which appeared on the original recording, so the 'alternative version' at the end this release is the first mix.
