Highly desirable artefact with the cataclysmic 'legendary guitar amp' version of Sister Ray recorded at the Boston Tea Party in 1969. I stupidly passed on a copy of the original black sleeve version when I saw it on release in 1987.... but picked up a copy of the 2012 reissue a while back. Rock n' roll as menace.
