Machine, initially likely called Sex Machine, is an unreleased track performed live as early as 1973 as one of the few original compositions known to be played by the band at the time, along with Do You Feel Like Dancing?, Danger Lover and Funk It Up (they mostly played cover versions of current hits) and recorded in early 1976 by Grand Central, at ASI Studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as 39th St. Party, Lady Pleasure, You're Such A Fox, Grand Central and Whenever). The sessions were engineered and overseen by David Rivkin (who is assumed to have produced the tracks as well). It is not known if the track was considered for inclusion on any project. The group had been playing the track live since at least 1973, however, although details of Grand Central's live shows are not well known.
