Release Information

  • Date: 1995
  • Media: CD
  • Catalogue number (comments): TONE-2CD001

Comments

  • Collection of rarities and b-sides. About half the tracks are live. It seems that there are 2 pressings of this CD, the later one has the label printed on the front cover. I don't know if there is any difference in the quality of the 2, and I assume that the track listing is the same.
  • A copy of the original was also issued on Chance Records (a subsidary of Red Robin). The cover is the same as the Tone version, but there is no mention of a catalogue number anywhere.

Quality

  • Great sound throughout. - Live! Music Review (June)
  • Sound isn't as good as some boots, but the material is good. Some of the live stuff sounds muffled. - Kristin Archick
  • Excellent material & sound, and one of the best boots I've heard (9/10). I've compared a number of these tracks with the original vinyl & CDs and the treble lacks a little 'brightness', like when recording with Dolby. Also, there is occasional tape drop-out (most noticable at the start of Mischievous Ghost). However, these are very minor defects. - Paul Hosken
  • Performance: 7/10. Sound: 6/10. - John Steffes
