|Comments:|| The first three songs are interesting; Interstellar Overdrive
is the _Tonight Let's All Make Love In London_ version. But
with "Flaming" the quality goes down rapidly, with lots of
tape hiss and some distortion; there's also some static, like
it was recorded off a radio that wasn't quite tuned in. It's
really a pity, because "Vegetable Man" and "Scream Thy Last
Scream" are better performances than on Early Singles (although
Scream.." lacks the "chipmunk" voice). "Jugband Blues" has the
brass band bit played on a kazoo, which makes it sound much better.
If you can stand lots of static and hiss, or are willing to lop
off the high end to get rid of it (even with Dolby and the treble
knob turned all the way down it was still quite audible), it's
an interesting roio; otherwise you should probably avoid it.
