I have this tape. It is a pretty good live document ("room recordings") of a certain period of this sub section of the Experimental music scene in Chicago at the time, (mid-late 1980's). The Burden of Friendship tracks represented here are material from their less Experimental period (no beats or songs per say - '84-'85) and these are more like 'Rock' songs (very roughly speaking).
Correction L: the track (B-1) is not the 'live at the Metro' track its B-4 ("Burden of Every Belief")and it was the show that was a benefit for WZRD 88.3fm (Chicago) to get their antenna repaired , for the station had been off for most of the summer of '86. Also, at that show were: Naked Raygun , Algebra Suicide, Bloodsport , Devil Bell Hippies, ONO, and others....
