Notes:
Several releases of this one, the Original Perss printed in Red vinyl, also available on rare blue vinyl (some were black vinyl with no matrix) - laminated cover (some with inserts), and red blank label.
Another one has a picture of Steel Mill on the cover, called Rarities and a US only (pictured below) release on TAKRL, but all have the same tracks.

"If they kept sales charts on bootlegs, FIRE ON THE FINGERTIPS and E TICKET [sic] would both easily be best sellers: They are the two records almost every collector will have". [excerpted from a short article entitled "The essential bootleg album guide", featured in the fanzine Backstreets no.6 (May 1983)].

According author Clinton Heylin, the CD version of "Fire on the Fingertips" is "Forgotten Songs", which has identical track list except it also includes THE FEVER.
