Bob's Boots ref  #  BB-r27 (a)

This is another of several releases of the Power Station material. There were at least four different double CDs of the same name that contained basically the same material, in much the same quality. Each package was released by a different manufacturer. This Power Station material has also been released, in part, in several packages; under various titles. The quality of this material is great. There is some slight tape hiss, and at times 'dead air' noise. The overall sound, success of  'Infidels', and desire for studio outtakes has been the spawn of the numerous releases. 
The outtakes themselves are most highly recommended. There really seems to be no particular standout as far as the various versions of CDs, ... If you own one, for all practical purposes you own then all.
