Notes

  • The version of Less Than Zero is the Clover-backed album version.
  • The version of I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself is slightly different to that on the Live Stiffs album. The vocals here have lots more reverb and EC starts off singing the word "just" instead of "I just" as on Live Stiffs. Maybe one of these two versions has overdubbed vocals.
