1998 Rykodisc.
FZ approved master, 1993.

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. ( From the booklet )
