2CD Expnaded Edition. This Esoteric Recordings edition has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and is expanded to include four previously unreleased studio session alternate takes and Matching Mole’s appearance on BBC Radio One “In Concert” in July 1972. The booklet restores all original artwork and includes an essay by Sid Smith. Matching Mole's Little Red Record (1972) is the second album of the British Canterbury Scene band Matching Mole. Compared to their first album, Little Red Record was more of a team effort, with Wyatt taking a less involved role. The band was formed in 1971 by Robert Wyatt after he left Soft Machine. The album title references Chairman Mao's Little Red Book. This is responsible for the faux-Chinese style of the album cover, which is reminiscent of posters created during the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
