Notes Semi-approved by the band; they were given some copies as payment. Pressing of 1000.

Rock 'n Me is a Steve Miller cover, Listen to the Lion (not listed on the sleeve) is a Van Morrison cover, and Games Got a Price is a Flipper cover.

Track 1 recorded live in (most likely) San Diego, May 1992.

Tracks 2-6, 9-13 recorded live at the Cat's Cradle, Carrboro NC, 5 May 1993.

Tracks 7 & 8 recorded at an unknown location, 1992 (possibly May).

Tracks 14 & 15 recorded live for KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic Radio show, Los Angeles, 11 August 1993 (Lou solo accoustic).

Tracks 16 & 17 recorded live for Black Session, France Inter FM, Paris, France, 22 June 1993.

Overall sound is very good to excellent and most selected tracks are taken from soundboard recordings, except 1, 7, and 8, which are audience recordings. For some reason tracks 12-17 are at the wrong speed (too slow).

There's some tape-collage stuff between tracks including snippets of the 1991 Show tape (as released on the Soul and Fire CD-EP), Sebadoh on stage tuning instruments, giggling girls, and other random tape bits (incl. a short snippet of Lou covering Dinosaur's Tarpit, singing 'Got kicked out of Dinosaur').
