A very strange album indeed, I suspect some sort of intermediate album engineered mainly by Haruomi Hosono. It seems to consist of various leftovers and parts of a radio-show and/or concert consisting of guitar-tracks and conversations, some in English (extremely silly stuff), some in Japanese.

There’s also a version (could be the one from 1988) without all the ‘Snakeman show’ tracks. To be frank, this is no great loss as almost all these ‘shows’ are Japanese spoken scetches which are hardly funny the first time you hear them, let alone the next times. So before you know it you’re programming your CD player to skip those tracks.
One exception is track #9 ‘Snakeman show (the magnificent seven)’ which is a very amusing version that would fit perfectly in the SKA era.Actually it’s track #10 ‘Multiplies’ that contains ‘magnificent seven’, track #9 just contains a show. I don’t know if this is a mistake on the cover or another YMO joke.
