Title: More Fun!  -  Company: WEA (Aust)  -  Cat No: (wea 0.257825)

Format: 12" ep  -  Released: April 1989  -  Status: Deleted

 

This EP was originally part of the vinyl box set, later sold separately at a discount price. It contains three live tracks, considered by the band to be some of the best until then unreleased archival live material. A fourth track is the uncharacteristic acoustically treated Stoneslike pop ballad Didn't Tell The Man, an outtake from the Rockfield sessions.

The live tracks are from a legendary show just before the band departed to England, where the large town hall venue and many cars outside were partially destroyed. The remainder of the show is on tape, and while inferior bootlegs exist, there is the potential for a great live album there.

Didn't Tell The Man went on to be a Hitmen staple, but without Rob's vocal, never sounded the same again.
