If you have brought ISDN already, and have overlooked this one because of the tracklisting, I would suggest you to still buy this...especially for any collector/fan of FSOL...the four songs represent the funkier/abtruse side of FSOL...and is most likely the original set of these tracks, before it was lifted and edited for the semi-live album.

There's a longer verion of "Snake Hips" intro to this jam was chopped off for ISDN, and "Smoking Japanese Babe" is introduced by the water waves of "Amoeba" and finally the Amoeba returns as a reprise...a "far out" set indeed, and it is one definetly worth checking out to hear these songs in the original format
