Notes:
1. Aside from the writing credits, Reed may well have contributed guitar and backing vocals to some of the Pickwick recordings. He certainly plays on “The Ostrich” and “Sneaky Pete.”

2. Track 33 was attributed to "Ronnie Dickerson" on some of Pickwick's releases. Same recording, different artist credit.

3. Jimmy Page plays the acoustic 12 string on tracks 42 & 43.

4. The Theatre Of Eternal Music (AKA The Dream Syndicate) during Cale's '64-65 tenure mainly comprised himself, La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela, Tony Conrad, and Angus MacLise. Widely hailed as founders and guiding lights of musical minimalsim, recordings of their early work are notoriously scarce. While the goal was to make this collection as complete and comprehensive as possible, there are some bootlegged Dream Syndicate/Theatre Of Eternal Music pieces purporting to feature Cale which I’ve opted not to include. The chief reason being my inability to reliably authenticate and date them. Hopefully, the recordings provided offer a fair enough account of his musical explorations with the group.
