All songs are written and performed by Mike Scott.
All instruments and vocals are by Mike Scott with the exceptions of 2nd guitar on "Experience Week Song" which is by David Hammond and backing vocals and percussion on "The Seaweed Shovelling Song" which are by The Findhorn Park Garden Crew.

The "Lion Of Love" CD is the second produced by the Mike Scott Information Society for its members. The CD aims to give an exclusive glimpse into the music surrounding the "Bring 'Em All In" album, with tracks taken from the album recording at Findhorn and others from radio sessions during the tour which accompanied the album.
Songs 1,2,8,9,10 and 11 were all recorded at Universal Hall Studio, Findhorn, during "Bring 'Em All In" in September/October 1994. "I Know She's In The Building" is the actual album version, pre-overdubs.
The "Experience Week Song" is about Mikes first week at the Findhorn community. He wrote it while he was there in December 1992.
All the Findhorn songs were produced by Scott and Bolas. They were recorded and mixed by Niko Bolas.
Songs 5, 6, and 7 are from an XFM radio session recorded in London in October '95. They were engineered and recorded by Sammy Jacobs.
Songs 3 and 4 were recorded in March '96 for CBC Radio's GABEREAU by engineer Denis Grenier in Vancouver.

"Lion Of Love", "Seaweed-Shovelling Song", and "Experience Week Song" are all Bring 'Em All In outtakes that never got reissued anywhere else. "Experience Week Song" has the same chord progression as "Bleecker Street", also recorded around this time but only ever issued on a rare promo single for "Building The City Of Light" (Chrysalis/EMI, DPRO 10453).

"I Know She's In The Building" is just the acoustic guitar and vocal track for the album version.

Tracks 3-7 are all live radio tracks; "All The Things She Gave Me" later turned up on CD 2 of the "Rare Precious And Gone" single set (Chrysalis, CDCHS 5073 or CDCHSDJ 5073), but that's the only song from this CD that was ever reissued (as of 2017).

"Wonderful Disguise" is an alternate take in a different key.

"Everlasting Arms" is a demo of the song from Still Burning.
