*''[[A Few Old Tunes]]'' seems to be sourced from a cassette tape containing a (presumably) hand-selected set of pre-''[[BoC Maxima]]'' tracks. The leaking of these tracks to p2p networks ([[wikipedia:Soulseek|Soulseek]], originally) provided much drama on [[WATMM]].

* Commonly referred to as ''[[A Few Old Tunes]]'', due to its label; however, according the [[Twoism forum]] user dealer, who posted new photos of the cassette and liner notes, it is also the true ''[[Old Tunes Vol. 1]]'' (and not [[Random_35_Tracks_Tape|the tape previously assumed to be OTV1]]). But, on the other hand, the [[WATMM|WATMM forum]] user phaelam posted new scans from a different angle which depict ''[[A Few Old Tunes]]'' as the cover and the cassette label. This leads to believe [[Boards of Canada]] used two different labelings for the very same cassette. See the two conflicting [[Old_Tunes_Vol._1#Artwork|scans]] below.
