Highly recommended

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Demo releases are often for fans only and reveal blemishes that are later fixed by clever producers. I find the opposite here. The slick production on the studio releases removed a lot of the personality of this band. This CD includes what I consider to be the best versions of many Records songs and makes me wish I had seen them live early in their career."
