Archaeology Single Released

The Rutles' Shangri-La CD5 single was released last monday, including the CD version of Joe Public and two unreleased bonus tracks.

Here is a description of the two bonus tracks from the CD5's liner notes:

Baby S'il Vous Plait (Baby Let Me Be - French Version)
Performed live in front of an audience of surrealists at the Rene Magritte Club in Belgium. The entire audience was nude, covered in oil and pressed closely together in a giant bath pretending to be sardines. Which is why you can't hear them. But everyone enjoyed themselves.

It's Looking Good
One of the old rehearsal tapes that Ron found in his shed. It's much faster than the previously-released version and features Ollie Hallsal on guitar and vocals. Ollie may not have been the finest guitarists in the world but he was among the top two.

Although the single has only been released in the UK, it is available in the US as an import. The four song Shangri-La single is also available on 10" vinyl.
