Features a lyrics sheet insert plus updated liner notes from Jim, exclusively written for this release
 
180g double vinyl, beautifully packaged in a full coloured gatefold, complete with photos and sleeve notes


Misty Morning Light is a reference to the chilly misty mornings that were anathema to me during my childhood, adulthood and middle age… I’ll be John, You Be Yoko was recorded on 24 track tape that makes it an unashamed old style recording. No computer, no click tracks, no modern recording aids. It’s basically a rowdy pop thrash…Dare to Be Great was recorded in one take. It is nothing but a little vignette that muses upon the musical oddities that end up becoming great work… I hope you enjoy the bonus tracks and it was a little pleasure to have dug them out from the forgotten archives.” 
– Jim Lea, commenting on the additional vinyl bonus tracks, 2016 Therapy liner notes


Jim Lea is most notable for playing bass guitar, keyboards, violin, guitar, and singing backing vocals in Slade and for co-writing all of their hits.
