Total Time ::: 53:13

::: Fine AUD tape with some unnecessary audience (lack of) participation in the background. Check samples for aural prognosis or illuminating kaleidoscopic tranced-out tidbits.
::: Warts: At times a noisy talkative audience. No doubt I missed some dropouts but hopefully fixed most of 'em.
::: Excellent! Mostly material from 1st 2 releases "Emergency Third Rail Power Trip"&"Explosions In The Glass Palace". What more do you want?!
::: Track 11 "Glory is a cover of the song by Television.

CoolSonics 174 ::: Thanks to the original taper & traders! Like so many great 80s recordings of cool bands, this came from the MillsMan ::: Corrections welcome ::: Nothing much I can say that hasn't been said about this band. I could hear a hundred shows. Psychedelia like spiders weaving golden shimmering webs through every corner of your brain. Unique & missed. Enjoy this one if you've never heard it or if this upgrades whatever you had.

Kudos to Zongo for life support, Lochner for mikes&more & Fast Freddie for runnin' Video Dick's Record Emporium with the bathroom office full of tape decks. Thanks to Hanwaker (few among us can keep his pace). Mountains of gratitude to Davmar, D.White, Sanchez, Elliot, The Florida Kid, Kloiber, Zingg, JTW, Bershaw, Boston Gold, Weeks, Dixon, Moore, Gough & SO many more for all that collecting & sharing... Royal thanks to The Man In The Palace, Doc Tinker, Brinkhoffs, Barely Eatin', Reel Master Gaule, Parrish & all the traders who housed me thru my music acquisition & travel years. Hats off to Brother Kent, Uncle Jake, Little Queenie (& her neighbor Frank) & his honor Ptomaine Thomas. Glasses raised to Byron for musical horizon expansion & much obliged to J & Thurston for keepin' my concert fires burnin' since my continental shift. Thanks to the Mods for keepin' DIME alive. Enjoy, share, give, spread peace. Yers truly, Knees

Do whatever you want with it except sell it, 'cause that ain't cool!
