I like this record. Kind of weird that discogs is allowing the sale of a VU boot.

if i bought all the VU bootlegs in the world in order of sound quality, this would be one of the last ones to be purchased. Buy it to look at if you want, but it is pretty much unlistenable - that's why all the vinyl copies are still mint after 30 yrs! There are marginally better and much longer versions of the Hedy and Chelsea Girls bits circulating online, but they are also quite hard going!

Too bad that it has such an awful sound quality.
