The inlay information includes multiple errors – correct information has been substituted in the above listing:

– Three 'bonus promo tracks' ('No Escape', 'Sluggin For Jesus' [a mislabelling of 'Sluggin' Fer Jesus'], and 'Yashar') are listed, but are not included. They appear only on the DVD. This error has evidently been caused by the designers copying and pasting information from the DVD package.
– The date of the recording on CD1 is given as '11.08.83' on the front cover but '11.03.83' on the back cover and on the disc itself. '11.08.83' is correct.
– The introduction track is not listed on CD1, resulting in all subsequent tracks listed being out-of-sync with the contents of the disc.
– '24-24' is mislabelled '24/24'.
– 'The Dream Ticket' is mislabelled 'Dream Ticket'.
– The subtitle is missing from 'Trouble (Won't Stop)'.
– 'Sex, Money, Freaks' is mislabelled 'Sex Monkey Freaks.
– Alan Fisch is miscredited as Alan Fish (artist name variation left as printed).

I was at this gig at tha Hacienda in 1986. It was brilliant and Cabaret Voltaire were at their creative peak at that time I recon. Although the music itself is good, the recording and mastering quality is not. What a shame as this is an important document of one of the very best underground artists of the 1980's. Cherry Red should have rejected this and sent the master tapes back to improve the sound quality and volume (which is half what it should be). What a way to treat Cabaret Voltaire - they deserve better! Get this if you love CV, after all, there aren't any other live recordings from this crucial period released (the others are much earlier and later - during the other phases of their diverse careers). But, you'll need to whack your amp up to double to hear it properly.
