The 20 unreleased demo recordings on Omnivore's new Unicorn compilation Laughing Up Your Sleeve were produced by Pink Floyd's David Gilmour and highlight the band's talent for laid-back folk-rock. All the tracks were recorded in David Gilmour's home studio in 1973-74, with Gilmour playing his trademark pedal steel guitar on "Sleep Song." The demos have been restored, mixed, and mastered by Scott Anthony at Storybook Sound in New Jersey with input from Pat Martin from Unicorn for optimum sound quality. Meanwhile, the set also includes rare photographs and extensive liner notes featuring new interviews with David Gilmour and members of Unicorn that detail the band's history and how the demos were finally unearthed.
This CD version includes 20 tracks, expanding on the abridged LP version that was released in early October.
