Rarities Volume I & Volume II is a two-album series collecting songs by The Who, released in 1983 on Polydor in the United Kingdom. The very first release in this series was a single LP titled Join Together - Rarities issued by Polydor in Australia and New Zealand in 1982. It had the same contents as the later released Rarities Volume II with the exception of a shorter version of "I Don't Even Know Myself". The short version of this song fades out about twenty seconds early instead of having a full ending.

Flamborough Head: "In the 25 years of its existence, Flamborough Head released a demo, six studio albums and one live album. Through the years the band was asked to participate in several projects which resulted in various contributions – sometimes new compositions but also reworked or live versions of songs released earlier on one of our studio albums. Witek Andree of Oskar asked us to compile a cd containing all these contributions complemented with some unreleased live tracks".
The young Claudio Arrau made records in Berlin and London which reveal the lasting qualities of his pianism: a sovereign technical command, a deep patience and a gravitation towards weighty matters, enriched by his study with ‘philosopher pianists’ such as Busoni and Martin Krause, that resulted in these profound and impassioned recordings of Beethoven, Brahms and Chopin, most of which have not previously appeared on CD, and all of them newly remastered for this tribute to a master pianist of the 20th century.
