I like those "shortie but goodie" bits that I usually find on the b-sides of various tapes. Back in the analog-days, we
used to optimize room in the tapes (they were expensive!) during trades and when there was enough room to fill with
little snippets, it was a good idea to ask to fill it till the end. Specifically, this small Police session was at the
end of a Yes show. I listened to it and liked it very much. Soundwise this is a bit muffled, the recording shows its age
but still enjoyable. For the record, the music is live in the studio!
