"The first disc in this pack is alternate versions of songs from the Outlands album and various B-sides. They all sound distinctively different from the original versions, especially since they all contain saxaphone. Was that You and The Man Who Never Was(listed as the Traveller) have great bass lines and sax solos that set them apart from the original. The version of Embassy Song is the best available, and the cover of Bob Marley's Get Up Stand Up shoudn't be missed. Stangers in our Town and Land of Shame sound completely different then album versions. My favorite song would have to be Jack Straw, with inovative drumming and a great solo at the end. The second disc is a live recording from 85. The sound quality is kind of poor, and all of the songs are divided into three tracks, so you have to listen to it kind of like a cassette. Besides that, the set list is great, comprised of some of the bands better songs. Up All Night and Mickey are really good on this disc. The best part is a very early version of Land of Shame(unlisted) in between Comeback and Attica. Oddly, Kirk announces Harlan County in between Prisoner of Love and Once in Her Lifetime, but the track is missing here. Overall this disc is a great buy if you can get past the bad recording on the second disc."
