  • Sup, except 10,11
Comments: I would rate 10 and 11 as VG -> BTW

Track times are from CD player; total time is just over 74 minutes.

The only really notable thing about this disc is the Top Gear material, which has been available elsewhere, but I don't think it's ever been this clean-- sounds like the master. Some fake crowd noise is mixed in, but not intrusively. It's too bad the rest of the TG material wasn't on this disc rather than what is. The first three tracks seem to be exactly the same source as BIG 095. The last two tracks are inexcusably poor quality; certainly listenable, but there are several discs of that material that are better. -ANON
