Review:
This CD is packed with great outtakes from 64-65. Unfortunately, the overall sound is a little muffled. It's quite enjoyable, however, and not nearly so bad as to deter acquisition. Although recorded at the correct speed, the muddy sound gives everything the feeling of being slow. A couple of these songs, Sitting On A Barbed Wire Fence and It Takes a Lot to Laugh, have since been released on the official Bootleg Series in incomparable quality, but there are count-offs and endings here that are faded out on the official release. On Suze, Bob can be heard saying "OK" right before the cut off. I'll Keep It With Mine is a different, slightly more up tempo version than the released one, with a superimposed 3/4 time feel. Eternal Circle is different, with a harp solo at the end. If You Gotta Go, Go Now begins with a drum and guitar intro. The package is quite nice, with a sharp looking full color cover, and a period black and white photo on the back. As the manufacturer is actually TMQ, the title and front cover came about simply because they already had it camera ready from an LP project of two years earlier. The biggest problem with this package is one that has always haunted TMQ. There is no historical information what-so-ever  as to dates, sessions, etc.

History:
This is an interesting title with a colorful history. When TMOQ began LP production again in the mid '80s, they hooked up with a printer that produced amazing quality, slick LP covers. As the '80's came to a close, the offer of boot CD pressing was made available. TMOQ jumped on the bandwagon, and this title was among the first pressed. The title and cover came about simply because TMOQ already had the camera ready art from an LP release of 3 years earlier. An even earlier release than that lent it's cover to the inside flap. The folding card was printed on heavy, LP stock cardboard, but it was laid out for printing as an LP (with the front cover as the left side panel). The card then needed to be inserted backwards to be correct. Some retailers inserted the card correctly, and it appeared to be a different title. Of course, the Condor and Toasted Labels are a TMOQ creation. They claim that they used the same source tapes as for their earlier LP releases. There are a handful of vinyl pops here and there. Whether these noises are from official acetate or boot acetate is uncertain, although most likely the latter.
