Broadcast by France Inter radio for the L’inrockuptible show hosted by Bernard Lenoir and Hilda Carr.

Eight of the tracks recorded at this acoustic session were made available across two four track CDs, given away free with French music magazine Les Inrockuptibles (which incorrectly give the recording date as 5/5/92):

CD1 ‘Blind’: Shine On, Hope, Hannah, I Don’t Why I Love You
CD2 ‘Burn’: Crush Me, The Girl With The Loneliest Eyes, Philly Phile, Fade Away

These eight tracks were also included in the 2022 Burn Down The World Fontana-era 8CD box set.

The full session was made available unofficially in 2012 by French label Sangatte Records, as part of their Les Archives Des Black Sessions 1991-2011 series.
