The long bonus track Gem was the prototype recording for the soundtrack to the New Zealand thriller "Next of Kin" (1983). The second part Tiptoe on the Misty Mountain Tops was actuelly used in the film and released as Next Of Kin on the sondtrack album. To make the 2005 reissue fit on 2 CDs including this long bonus track, the song order had to be altered.

A part of Walk the Edge from JUBILEE EDITION (1997) and the complete song Highway from DRIVE INN (1984) are alternate versions of Gem.

Although Gem is one continuous track, you can skip to any of the subtitles separately.
