::: EXC up-close stereo AUD. Check samples for if yr dubious or to whiff the roses.
::: Warts: Not many left! Wish it was longer. Split second of stage mike feedback in #6 & occasional lower level feedback elsewhere. Occasional mike movement noises, mostly just between songs, now lowered or repaired. Fixed dropouts & dullspots but surely missed a few. Removed and/or lowered near mike claps.
::: Shortly before the recording of their debut album, "Emergency Third Rail Power Trip".
::: Be forewarned about the very out of tune guitar at the start of #2.
