Session Details: 

Bruyninckx and Lordisco say Call Cobbs plays "Harpsichord-1" and then put the numeral "1" beside the track "Angels". I assume this means that Call Cobbs does not play AT ALL on the other tracks, but it is far from explicit, although from a layman's perspective, there does not appear to be keyboards on the other tracks. Also, on Allmusic.com, they mention that peacock and grimes play bass together on 3 out of the 5 tracks, but does not specify which 3. Bruninckx and Lordisco say that Grimes sits out on Angels, which means there is one other track that only either Peacock or Grimes plays on. More research should be done to determine which.
