Notes

'The Wipers first 3 classic LP's digitally re-mastered, 23 bonus tracks and 6 never before released songs with liner notes by Greg Sage.'

1-1 to 1-11: Is This Real?.
Bonus tracks: 1-12: Wipers first song ever recorded in 1979 but was never released / 1-13: was originally recorded for "Is This Real?" but was never released / 1-14: a very early recording that also was never released / 1-15 to 1-18: songs of the original 4 track recording of "Is This Real?" / 1-19 to 1-22: The Alien Boy EP
℗ 2001 ZENO Records © 1980 TRAP Records

2-1 to 2-6: Youth Of America.
Bonus tracks: 2-7: was recorded during the "YOA" sessions with a 4 piece horn section. This song was mixed bright to bring out the feel of edginess with the horns but did not fit the dark mood of the "YOA" LP. Sadly it was never released. / 2-8, 2-9, 2-11: out-take mixes from another studio with some slight differences. "YOA" has a different feel with the snare up front and the guitars blended more edgy. / 2-10: recorded with a different drummer who was later replaced by Brad Naish and his awesome hypnotic style.

3-1 to 3-11: Over The Edge.
Bonus tracks: 3-12: recorded live 1983 in San Francisco. Mistaken ID was a song we had plans to record for "Over The Edge", but was forgotten. / 3-13: recorded at the "OTE" sessions, the flipside for the "Romeo" EP. / 3-14 to 3-16: out-take mixes for "OTE" with some differences. / 3-17: a different mix and vocal track with a lot more horn section. / 3-18: a short instrumental demo we almost recorded for "OTE".
