Comments: Almost legit-looking 2CD. First disc consists of the commerically available DSOM Quad mix, from very clean vinyl. Only the earliest moments of "Money" (starting vinyl side 2) really give the source away. Sounds 10x better than my own very clean import DSOM Quad LP. Worth the price right here. Rest of disc one is audio from the making of DSOM section of the "Pompeii" film. Essentially worthless unless you've never seen/heard this before.

Second disc consists of an "alternate mix" of DSOM from a dubious and indistinct source. Sounds alot like the regular Quad mix (wholly discinct from the common stereo), but harsher, lots of raw top end and a few nasty tape hits. More vinyl noise than on the first disc. Could be from an acetate????? Same can be said for the "rough mixes" here. Money demo is lovely and clean - tape source - but only 1:44. "Time" rough mix - minus some key overdubs - is great, as are all the rest of these last tracks, esp. great noodling guitar overdub (never used) on top of "Brain Damage". Cover art comes from out of print 20th anniversary DSOM box. Superb on balance, save for ripoff "Pompeii" material. Wets the appetite for a proper DSOM retrospective box from the band, themselves. Official CD versions of the records are well overdue.
