Limited to 2,500 hand-numbered unique and signed 2xCD packs, released in a 4-panel cardboard gatefold wallet.
Contains a sheet of notes/text by M. Gira discussing the live recordings and plans for developing them on record.

The album contains six live songs recorded during the 2014/15 tour, four of which are new, unfinished and unrecorded at the time of this album's release.
Also included are five demos by M. Gira, that will be re-recorded and further orchestrated to be included on the forthcoming new Swans album.

The image on this release is printed with a linoleum block on hand-brushed white ink.
The drawing for the print was accomplished by Nicole Boitos (who also signed and numbered the releases), based upon a sketch/concept by M. Gira.
Each individual cover is further drawn upon, personalized and signed by M. Gira.

Track durations do not appear on the release, they are measured by a computer.

      I'm glad I bought this because it's fantastic music. I'm also glad because it appears that it might end up being my retirement fund, based on the current pricing trend.

        Possibly the best sounding of all of SWANS/Michael Gira handmade CDs. This one has a fantastic stereo balance to it.
