What you hear on this record is what actually happened. No artificial sweeteners, colourants or emulsifiers added. Deemed fit for consumption by The Government.
Dedicated to the Love Generation.
We were all disappointed at the way this came out. The concert was great, but logistics prevented us from making anything much more than a glorified bootleg. Still, live albums are best as souvenirs anyway, so I guess some people regard it fondly. Lots of entertaining photos to look at anyway...

I had this superb album but have long since lost track of it. I'd love to get this one again.

This is still the definitive butcher album for me. I was lisening to some versions on glourious and idiotic. They just lost some of the energy of of early days. Plese please make it available again. I partied to this album during my high school days. This the,and ep's of the the's uncertain smile and perfect are what I always search for.

For such a rare LP, I would think the web page would have the "Lots of entertaining photos to look at" in the album that we can never find. The discograpghy does such a great job on "Bacon" but "Hamburg" and "Scandal" seem to come up short on photos.
