Haunting release. Loved the quality of the recording from the bootlegs we had. Much better. Cold Coffee and Cocaine on repeat.

There is probably only one release....not EU and US!
The both US and EU versions have printed in EU on Labels and the Cover has printed in USA!
Seems to me that there is just one release...they are both the same!
