Alexander Beetle (Forgiven) by Frazer-Simson, Milne
UK Compilation released in 1973 by Buddah Records 2318 080 SUPER
Re-issued 1974 as BDLP 4001.
Contains an alternative version of Alexander Beetle
While this is a fairly standard compilation gathering together material from the UK Buddah label it does contain one surprise. The version of Alexander Beetle is an alternate version to the one that appeared on Candles In The Rain. This version sounds more like a demo version and is performed in a child-like voice throughout.
