"These solos were recorded live between 1979 and 1984. None of them are perfect, but I hope you enjoy them anyway. Except for the ending synthesizer line on "Things That Look Like Meat", there are no overdubs, and, for the most part, the solos have been left full length. This album is not recommended for children or Republicans."
