A wonderful set. If you are an  Oh Mercy, and/or studio outtake material fan, this one is not to be missed. There is a tape hiss from this 2nd generation mix console recording. It has been suggested that it was recorded 'through the air' with an open mic. If this is the case, however, it is a super clean recording (save for the hiss) that sounds like a board recording. Don't let this minor white noise problem hinder your enjoyment of this newly released material. The front cover photo from the video shoot, along with the classy title and aesthetics, help to make this one a package not to miss. The set was rereleased in 2001 by OMR

If your ears are sensitive to white noise, there is a release entitled Ring Them Bells that goes most of the way in removing it. However, the slightly different tracks and processed sound make it hard to rate either disc as 'better' than the other.
