Madrid is an unreleased instrumental recorded on 28 December 1985 during the so-called "Paisley Jam" session (that also produced Breathless, Slaughterhouse, U Just Can’t Stop, Run Amok, 12 Keys, High Calonic and Mobile), at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California. The session was all improvised, and recorded with no breaks between tracks; track names were given afterwards by Eric Leeds as a way of more easily identifying the pieces of music. It is unknown if this track was intended for The Flesh album or any other project. A part of the melody of Madrid was later reused in the Eric Leeds track Andorra.
