Essential Glastonbury is a promotional cover CD given away with issue 216 of Q magazine. The CD was released in cooperation with Greenpeace with the result that the cover was printed on recycled paper. The following excerpt is the introduction from the inside of the cover sleeve.

A NOTE FROM GREENPEACE — Ancient forests are home to nearly two thirds of the world’s land-based species and are vital to the health of our planet. Yet these unique ecosystems are still being trashed, often to make throwaway timber and paper products

A NOTE FROM THOM YORKE OF RADIOHEAD — right now we are wiping out many rare and very important species, permanently. All for the sake of crap garden Furniture and click-together floors. Nuts.

The live version of "Block Rockin' Beats" was previously unreleased. "A Forest" (Acoustic Version) was only previously featured on Acoustic Hits.
