Reseña de álbum

One scans the eight-page booklet accompanying this release in vain for some clue as to when and for what purpose this material was recorded, and whether it's ever been available before. Just about all the other info you could want is here, including a note that Nikki Sudden was one of the album's compilers, indicating that this couldn't have been done without his knowledge.
