This release was previously part of the Rejuvenation (2001-2014) box set, which
was released in March 2019. A month later, it was issued separately.
Bonus material included the Internet-only pre-release teaser Too Much Television and the two
bonus song from the Home single namely Bird On A Wire and
Mighty Joe Moon.
Jim expanded on the sleeve notes he'd originally written for Rejuvenation (2001-2014)
and so the version in the booklet is longer.
