**Not to be confused with The Original Moose on the Loose which is a singles compilation.

The Deram Anthology and recent Beggin compilations[detailed opposite] include singles and b-sides plus tracks recorded for the unreleased album.

You can, however, listen to what the album probably would have comprised here:
