The following is a guide/selection of the most notable releases to feature
Sid's post - Swindle solo output. The
following are taken from live recordings. Much of this material has been duplicated
many times and spread over many releases.
Virgin V2144 "Sid Sings"
Born To Lose / I Wanna Be Your Dog / Take A Chance On Me / Stepping Stone / My
Way / Belsen / Something Else / Chatterbox / Search And Destroy / Chinese Rocks
/ I Killed The Cat
Notes. "Official" release. Culled from two
performances at Max's Kansas City, September '78. Virgin did the best they could
with the quality of the source tape.
Despite clever editing, "My Way"
isn't from the same performances. Vocally, "My Way" sounds the same
as the "Swindle" movie/video performance.
