(In regards to the rechanneled tracks, + indicates sides using the Parrot rechanneled mixes with non-original added percussion, probably done for the 2LP Parrot anthology from the 1970s, ++ indicates sides using the Parrot rechanneled mixes from the second album, and +++ indicates demos that were slightly rechanneled when issued on LP in 1960's in Germany, and they did not have the mono mixes available.)
