This is a great bootleg, nice artwork and presentation, while the music, though certainly not essential, is a nice bit of their odd music history. Funny how Eno gets the credit for making 'Ambient' music when clearly man musicians before him were doing the very thing without giving it a pretentious label and claiming it for his own. The Nothing Song is a great dark droning instrumental with Nico's sparse vocals blending well with the mix; the instrumental jam is not so impressive though, definitely less structured and inspired, but still worth the listen. The sound quality is really good too, even when ripped onto mp3s.
