Released in 1991 in a limited edition cassette only format. Now remastered and re-edited to return to an "as originally intended" state.

Part 1: Recorded live in 1991 - This live improvised performance occurred at KFJC in Los Altos Hills CA on the Mr. Hate Show. The track had originally been broken into segments due to some extreme noise from station equipment during quiet spots and was the entire first side of a cassette only release in the early 90's. The original recording was unearthed and the track has been repaired back to its intended form.

Part 2: Live improvised performance recorded at the Kennel Club in San Francisco. Originally featured as side 2 of the cassette only release and has now been remastered.
