2. Back On The Road # 1
is the sound quality of enough to be published in this state official (perfect line recording). It is a prototype of the “Back On The Road” and was named “The Score”, but equivalent to a sense official, no asserts that large masterpiece version that combines the charm of the more maturity. The instrumental version, but the arpeggiator outstandingly cool also frequently used the arrangement of Keith and, above all, Cozy of drumming is overwhelming! In particular, the second half of the 2 bus barrage will be made ​​to Namida-sa the fans big powerful

3.The Miracle # 1
is the instrumental version of the grand Omagari decorated with A face the second half of the album. Keith in still feel that he said groping in the dark also play as Cozy also faithfully likes to their habit, we earnestly beating. (Also Greg base interesting) it is indeed Suponteniasu play an interesting take you have a natural session. Start from the middle, 3: in the vicinity of 08, will turn off suddenly.

4. Band Discussion # 1
all members and Tony Taverner will start the hassles regarding arrangement of The Miracle. Everyone, or each other to confirm the code, you can sing the melody, or whistling, Keith can play the keyboard, it is a pretty good atmosphere. Greg pretty is like “trying to focus on arrangements that assumes the live performance”, it is interesting to have taken the Ondo.

5. The Miracle # 2
and I will not play back many times The Miracle. Also hear members of the middle voice. Last Exit to become only the drum in a fairly natural feeling. It is an interesting take.

6. The Miracle # 3
examples are not still complete, but it has been properly recorded from the intro. # 1 than sound quality is even better. Cozy play is also very clear. This will impress! It will cut off suddenly at 4:37.

7. Back On The Road # 2
sound distortion version it is excessive input by the microphone recording. Also nice voice to say “Yeah” at the beginning. Force is a perfect score. Greg vocal appearance! “Once Again ~ ♪” Cozy of drum arrangement also compelling. Arrangement is not possible to still compared to # 1, but it is the take of the appeal to reverse. Also compelling ending. Too terrible (3:30 vicinity)

8. Band Discussion # 2
Back On The Road # rollicking 2 to even too much force and play back the members like a child! Conversation of members of high spirits is the fun take to hear. (For some reason, also enter the sound of the car running outside)

9. Back On The Road # 3
Start from the free-form intro of the keyboard. Sound quality to the 5 better than. Members while playing back has ever excited. You hear the sound of wind the tape in the vicinity of 1:38.

10. Back On The Road # 4
start from the playback sound. Emerson will play the piano lightly situ. Also the start of the song of the tape, Emerson playing to fit the piano. This also is a valuable take! Arrangement has been considerable finished. Cozy of the drum is also quite firm is distribution, music has been lively. Also appeared Greg vocal! “Once Again ~ ♪ All Right, You Got It!” Only repeated, but it is quite fun. In quite a long take, it will also say the best take at this stage!

11.Back On The Road # 5
Cozy Telecom-specific (?), but is a microphone recording by Telecom, its minute, Cozy of force is amazing! This also all-you-can-you want to do in the great hit. Playing I have to stop in the middle. Out of control or that we feel that is no longer stick. But it is good at so visible appearance of three people that are playing and enjoying!

12.Back On The Road # and 6
while conversation will stop at 1:30 to play back, to enter directly the next track meeting.

13. Band Discussion # 3
is the conversation part that see that they have to worry about the deadline (the deadline). The following Greg of word
“Mmm..Yeah, were it not for the fact that we’ve got to turn up on Monday with this gear recorded..I’d go home now right”
to say what the deadline, perhaps, It is submitted to the record company will for the completion time of the demo-take.
Feeling that is frustrating a little tired everyone, Greg and engineers of Tony “than stuffing the arrangements (The Score), or not it is better to change the sound of the keyboard” have or vice versa.

14.Greg ‘Bass Session with Keith & Cozy
3 people that determines the base line of Back On The Road. Leader Emerson. C #, to Emerson for the A ♭ and instructions, Greg of the voice into not a little fun is instruction. Most, Emerson to seek the best sound. The way, the sound texture of “1,2,3.4!” And Cozy also putting is cool.
