        Stereo Soundboard for all tracks except A6 and B4 which are stereo audience and blended in. No visual track indicators, each side looks like one giant slab of groove. Several tracks faded in and out between songs, but not all. Fairly heavily compressed suggesting FM broadcast. Sound quality is like second gen cassette...some top end but what could be described as a fairly dull/limited, ie not much above 6khz or so. Decent bottom end. Both sides play slow...requires +2% speed on playback. Cut is decent level, yellow labels are undersized ie diameter of 9cm rather than the standard 10cm... Overall its a decent release as its SBD...apart from the small issues with it, the performance is great...7.5/10

          Sound quality is average for an R.E.M. bootleg. A bit muffled but the instruments and vocals share enough of the foreground for the recording to be listenable. Note that the record is mastered a tad too slow, so the pacing is sometimes noticeably slower and Michael's voice a bit deeper than usual. It isn't enough to spoil the listening experience for me but it is noticeable. Not a 'must have' but a great pickup if you find a copy under $20 out there.

            This LP was not made in the US but in Europe probably Italy.
            It had a standard printed cover. Probably only a small % came on a black album jacket with photocopied covers
