But volume 6 found (most) things back in working order with a number of excellent new tracks to drool over prior to the release of fuzzies 7 & 8 early this year.
Whilst the format for this series has now been established (new stuff / XTC demos / cassette doodlings etc), it is the strength of the material here that made it an essential purchase for XTC enthusiasts.
"I Can't Tell ...", "Tiny Circus of Life", "Difficult Age", "Prince of Orange" and "End of the Pier" justify the entrance fee alone but chuck in most of the XTC demos and you know you've backed a winner.
That's not to say that the quality control doesn't slip every now and again (sorry - I'm really not sure about "In My Hand" and the Skylarking demo of "Antheap" is a bit too rough for my liking) but we shouldn't forget - it's not as though the man hasn't told us that it is a demo archive in the first place.
So let's be happy we can get this stuff at all (all cleaned up, not bootlegged and money going to the right place) and look forward to the next fuzzy instalments coming shortly to a CD player near you.
