What's So Funny was released as a b-side on a vinyl 45 although which one 
escapes me. I thought they only performed it live til someone showed me the 
vinyl they had of it.

> The Real Thing   (Russell Morris)
> Wharf Rat   (Greatful Dead)
> Kolele Mai    (Traditional, words by F.B. DaCosta)
> No Man's Land   (Alan Simon)
