 Heatwave B-side, 'Rastus Ravel (Is A Mean Old Man)', was re-released, 2nd April 2013, as track 4 on 'Piccadilly Sunshine, Part Twelve – British Pop Psych and Other Flavours 1967-1971' ... on the Particles (UK) label ~ previously known as Past & Present Records.

Submitted to Steven Carr at Red River Exports Ltd./Particles by Greg Smith at the British Music Archive, no one in the band nor John Edward, the songwriter, knew anything about it.

Larry Page, owner of Penny Farthing Records, told Martin Samuel [Heatwave drummer] he had not licensed the songs to anyone since the 1970 release by Heatwave.

 Paul Martin reviewed the Piccadilly Sunshine, Part 12 album, on the Particles label, in Shindig Magazine April 2013 Record Reviews and wrote...

So here’s another hamper of low calorie sooth-sayers with pictures to paint. The indulgence food in this particular feast comes from Heatwave’s “phat” mod-soul funker, ‘Rastus Ravel’.

 Heatwave, minus Martin (the drummer), played as the backing band for the B-side, 'Rastus Ravel', by Melody Smith and John O'Hara for nothing while (as usual) they had a bit of studio time left over from a recording session.
