Of Interest:

Hondo's Dog is often still used by Deniz as the opening song of his live set. Ghost Riders, the Western standard, was done during the rehearsal and demo sessions for the tracks that would later become 444-The Number of the Beat. An album's worth of material was prepared, but the project was cut down to an EP when overshadowed by Radio Birdman reissue work.
