Tracks 1-6 are ripped from the original
vinyl and processed from there.

Tracks 7-20 are rough mixes, raw session tapes.
Occasional studio chatter can be heard between
tracks.

Track 9 is an alternate mix, notable for its
lack of backing vocals.

Track 13 is heard here from a tape playback,
rather than the more common acetate source.
It seems to have been truncated on purpose;
the noise at the end is a reel-to-reel tape
coming to a halt.  Had the acetate not been
found, nothing more would have remained of
this song.

Track 20 is a rough mix; no alternate version
has ever surfaced.
