In mid 1996, former Australian Crawl drummer Bill McDonough and producer Peter Blyton uncovered 24 lost track recordings, some of which were to become "Lost & Found". Copyrights that McDonough had collected and archived resulted in six reel to reel tapes containing a collection of about 17 original songs by Crawl songwriters.

The tapes had suffered slight damage due to poor storage so McDonough and Blyton traveled to Germany where the tapes were restored and transferred onto new tape stock at the EMI studios in Cologne. Next stop, Peak Studios in Dusseldorf where, for two weeks they sifted through the tapes and digitally re-mixed and re-mastered as many songs as possible, resulting in thirteen re-mastered tracks.

My Place sampler

Seven of the tracks were from Guy McDonough's album "My Place", which had been produced by Bill McDonough. Musicians joining Guy McDonough included Bill McDonough (drums), Sean Higgins (keyboards) and Nigel Spencer (bass) (all former bandmates in The Flatheads), Mick Hauser (saxophone) and Michael Bright (guitar). "My Place" tracks include "Too Many People" a duet sung by Guy McDonough with Colin Hay of Men at Work. [cite web |url=http://menatwork.com.br/novo/en/part.htm |title=Participações (Participation) |publisher=menatwork.com.br |accessdate=2008-03-31 ] Some "My Place" tracks have Crawl's James Reyne singing backing vocals.
