Added DiffLines:

* NoExportForYou : The Japanese single version of "The Kids" is an alternate, earlier recording to the version on "Return Of The Space Cowboy". The Japanese label wanted a new release to promote the band's tour and they quickly recorded "The Kids" which they had been playing on tour. Not satisfied with the original, it was decided to not release it in the UK.
** "Getinfunky" (an early Deeper Underground) was released as a Synkronized bonus track in Japan and Australia but not released at all in the UK.

Added DiffLines:

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The original vinyl version of "Emergency On Planet Earth" has an extended version of "If I Like It, I Do It" that has never been released anywhere else.


Added DiffLines:

* RegionalBonus: Several:
** "Emergency On Planet Earth"'s Japanese pressing has the inner sleeve pic as the front cover, which is what was originally intended.
** Light Years (Live) on the US "Return Of The Space Cowboy".
** Space Cowboy (Stoned Again Mix) on the Japanese "Return Of The Space Cowboy".
** "Do You Know Where You're Coming From" and "Funktion" on the initial UK and Australian special editions of Travelling Without Moving. The later pressings just include "Funktion" and have a different back cover. The Australian edition also has a whole bonus disc of remixes.
** "Deeper Underground" on the UK "Synkronized" and on the Japanese "A Funk Odyssey".
** "Getinfunky" on the Japanese "Synkronized" and on the Australian bonus disc for the album. This has the distinction of noExportForYou in the band's home country of the UK, although it is merely an early instrumental demo of "Deeper Underground" as opposed to a new track in its own right.
** "Time Won't Wait" on the UK, US and Japanese pressings of "Dynamite". It was supposed to be on all of them, but was subject to ExecutiveMeddling.
** "That's Not The Funk" on the Japanese "Rock Dust Light Star".

* ChartDisplacement: Their sole Hot 100 entry was "Alright", which (to say the least) is far less famous than "Virtual Insanity" and "Canned Heat".

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: His 2002 album "A Funk Odyssey" was subject to this. It was originally going to be quite different:
** Titled "2001: A Funk Odyssey" as it would have been released in 2001, and was going to sync up with 2001ASpaceOdyssey.
** Would have had "Do It Like We Used To Do" and three interlude tracks on it. Might also have included his soundtrack contribution "Everybody's Going To The Moon" and its intro track "Titan", which were constant fixtures of his setlist at the time. There were also three outtakes "Cannabliss", "Shoot The Moon" and "A Funk Odyssey" which would have been included had they been finished on time (they all were played live).
** "Main Vein" had been intended as a duet with his girlfriend of the time, but as they broke up, the lyrics were changed to be about the failure of the relationship. It is the only song where the title phrase doesn't appear in the lyrics, indicating it might have been in the original.
** Did not originally include "Love Foolosophy"; it was written when the label demanded another single.
** Several tracks were edited down and "So Good to Feel Real" was changed to being a hidden track in keeping with trends at the time. The order was also changed to give prominence to the intended singles, which means that the b-side has a seemingly random flow to most of it.

Added DiffLines:

* RecycledSoundtrack: Several examples:
** "Music Of The Mind" was written with lyrics, but the band decided to make it a instrumental.
** "Scam" from "The Return Of The Space Cowboy" is a condensed medley of the tracks "Do That Dance" and "Life Goes On" that had been done live in 1993.
** "Slippin And Slidin" was rush released before vocals could be added, but they were included when it was performed live.
** "Love Foolosophy" was based on the jam track "So Good To Feel Real" that was used as a HiddenTrack on "A Funk Odyssey".
** The intro to "Corner Of The Earth" was originally written for the unreleased "A Funk Odyssey" era song "Cannabliss". The band did play "Cannabliss" live in 2002, but had rearranged it into a much rockier song without the intro. This rockier version was later partly reworked into "Radio".
** "Use The Force" from "Live At Montreux" uses large amounts of the unreleased song "A Funk Odyssey" from that album's sessions. The full "A Funk Odyssey" track had also been played live in 2002.
** "Feels Just Like It Should" is built around the beatbox Interlude from "A Funk Odyssey"'s test pressing.

* AcCENTUponTheWrongSylLABle: ''Automaton''. Though, given the lyrics suggest the point of view of an android or other synthetic being, pronouncing it "auto-MAY-ton" is likely a deliberate thematic choice.

* LoudnessWar: To an extent, especially on A Funk Odyssey, where the multitracks were actually delivered clipped and distorted. This is particularly obvious when hearing a track like Main Vein and any of its remixes, where the distorted vocals stand in contrast to the usually well produced backing tracks.
