NOTES: "You Think You're Comin' " is missing on the
actual release and so is "Fast Food Service",
different versions of which were released
before ("Butcher Baby" 7" on Vice Squad) and after
("Beyond The Valley Of 1984" and "Metal Priestess").
Some of the songs aren't separate as on
"New Hope For The Wretched" but
merge into the following song.
A most interesting
document.

NOTES: This recording is special in many ways. Not only is it the only more or less complete concert
document from this era, but also does it include guitar and drum solos, is rather good-sounding
and includes an unreleased and rather proggy instrumental (too bad the tape flip occurs
towards the end, so we do not know how it ended), reminiscent of (viewed from back then) future
bands such as Mekong Delta or Mercyful Fate, paired with the "epicness" of some of the longer early
songs of bleeding Metallica.
