This CD accompanies the extremely rare first edition of the book, containing the Swedish translations to Lennon’s A Spaniard In The Works. The Swedish title is En Spann Jord I Maskineriet and it is published by Bakhall in Sweden; the ISBN is 91 7742 146 9. And is NOT included.
Yoko Ono’s cooperation for the CD is mentioned on the last page, that also contains a few notes on the CD-tracks: "This book with accompanying CD was published with a contract between Yoko Ono personnally and the independent Swedish bookpublisher Bakhall." Although the non-speech tracks (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) later also got released on Lennon Anthology (except 9), the CD is still quite interesting as in most cases the versions here are longer.
