These songs are from around the period of “Hunky Dory”, possibly unused songs from that album’s recording sessions

The sound quality is very good. Most of the songs are “Hunky Dory” outtakes, or for the rumoured cancelled album that should have been released between “Hunky Dory” and “Ziggy Stardust”!
