What's So Funny was released as a b-side on a vinyl 45 although which one
escapes me. I thought they only performed it live til someone showed me the
vinyl they had of it.

> Pub With No Beer (Slim Dusty)
> The Real Thing (Russell Morris)
> Wharf Rat (Greatful Dead)
> Kolele Mai (Traditional, words by F.B. DaCosta)
> No Man's Land (Alan Simon)
