While I have to agree with Nostradamus7 comments RE: the sound quality - it IS a bootleg recording after all - as a collectible item it rates highly in my estimation. The packaging is unique & the sound quality, while far from "lossless" isn't all THAT bad. In fact, I'd rate it about 6.5 on a 10 scale in sound quality, that is not great but by no means bad or even poor sound quality. Hence I agree that buying a FLAC file is a waste of money. If you're a collector who appreciates the object as well as the content this is a nifty package that takes little space, the performance & sound quality aren't the best but are still very worthwhile documents, particularly if you are a true fan of this band...R.I.P.

One of the more popular Coil bootleg recordings sales wise. Even the official thresholdhouse picked up this recording and is selling Flacs and Mp3s, its just a shame that this bootleg was sourced from a lossy mp3 found on the internet (as a result the threshold flacs are lossy sourced as well), or it may be worth the cost.

Live Coil bootlegs are widely traded but lossless ones are almost impossible to find.

Skip this release, don't be naive to assume its got a lossless sourced, don't be naive to assume any bootleg has a lossless source until tested, this one was tested spectrally and failed. You'd be paying for a CD when you can download the source mp3 from the internet.
