The JTQ’s second album for Acid Jazz came at a time when the label and the act were at loggerheads. Tensions that always tended to run high between label owner Ed Piller and James Taylor had boiled over in May 1995 when a dispute over the video for the second single from the “In The Hand Of The Inevitable” LP led to the single being scrapped. A feeling of injustice lingered, compounded when, in early 1996, Acid Jazz scored their biggest hit single with Goldbug’s ‘Whole Lot Of Love’, the same song featured on James’ abandoned single. With this in mind James recorded the album that became “A Few Useful Tips About Living Underground” as quickly as possible, as far away from the Acid Jazz hub of office and studio as possible, by using the Battery studio, home of James’ publisher Zomba Music….~


The James Taylor Quartets final album for Acid Jazz, first issued in the summer of 1996, was a return to their roots with 11 tracks of straight-ahead Hammond instrumentals. It is the sound of the touring Quartet which was a six-piece, plus a percussionist doing what they did best: playing together. The music stretches from Lonnie Liston Smith-style jazz funk, through out-and-out funk, tinged in places with touches of Keith Emerson. 
To the album tracks have been added DJ Derek Dahlarges remix of the albums single Creation done under his Ceasefire moniker, the first time that this has been available on a JTQ album. We have also included the three cuts that were added to the US release of the album. These were intended to be part of the soundtrack to Mike Myers first Austin Powers film, although only Austins Theme is heard anywhere in the film. It is the first time that the other two tracks Man Of Mystery and Theme From A Far Away Land have been available outside the US. 
Our reissue is carefully remastered and features an in-depth sleeve note from compiler and former Acid Jazz A&R man Dean Rudland. The booklet features previously unseen photos from the Acid Jazz vaults….~
