Tracks 1 to 8 were ripped from the bootleg CD "Berlin Part 1" on Golden Stars WPCD 1064 which I think was an Italian "copyright protection gap" semi-legal issue from 1991. It sounds as if it's been taken from a tape source.
Tracks 9 to 14 were lifted from sides 4, 5 and 6 of the bootleg 3LP vinyl set "Please Come Back, Lou" on Chamelion Records 0016/0017/0018. My copy is 179/300. There are a few clicks and pops on these tracks - it was never a great pressing in the first place and there are a couple of marks on my vinyl. I didn't try to clean it up at all, other than to fix a jump on side 6. I don't have a fancy upmarket turntable - just my old trusty "car boot sale" special.

What a long version of "Waiting For The Man" - maybe the longest ever? This set is missing "The Bells" - it was not included on the 3LP set, presuambly because of space limitations. It DOES appear on the "Berlin Part 2" bootleg CD but I dont have a copy of that to hand.

Distribute widely but do not sell!

Give copies to all your friends!
