"Oh! You Pretty Things" (Bowie): Song on HUNKY DORY (1971) performed only on the 3rd UK Tour. It was first recorded by Peter Noone - formally lead singer of Herman Hermits - with Bowie on piano and backing vocals - as the A-side on "Oh! You Pretty Things/Together Forever" (RAK 114 - 30 April 1971). It reached #12 on the UK charts in June 1971. However, Noone gave it a decidedly softer touch than Bowie would on the Hunky Dory album, replacing the lyric "...the Earth is a bitch.." with "...the Earth is a beast..." Bowie originally wrote this song with the idea of Leon Russell recording it.

"Only One Paper Left" (Bowie): Song started but not finished at the Trident Studio sessions for THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS (1972).

"Over, Under, Sideways, Down": Yardbirds song - a snippet of which was included in the Mick Ronson/Jeff Beck "The Jean Genie" guitar duet at the 3 July 1973 Hammersmith Odeon concert.
