Treader Versions is an EP collecting four early versions of the track Treader, which would later appear in yet another version on the self-titled Coppice Halifax album. These four versions were essentially a recording session that occurred in the gap between the self-titled sessions and the 1983 session, and were omitted from the album after the first version from the 2006 sessions proved to be a favorite. Musically, they are very emblematic of the CH sound in its genesis - compost-like compositions built from heavily processed loops and field recordings, with rhythmic elements that seem to rise from the bottom of a swamp. In 2008, a very limited edition physical pressing was produced, which quickly went out of print, remaining unavailable until this digital release, which contains updated artwork built from photographs taken for the self-titled Coppice Halifax album.
