The 101ers recorded professionally, I can imagine this tape being very rough if it was recorded straight to cassette. It's not something I'm yearning for, that would be clean recordings of Rat Patrol and TRAC.
Meh, the best thing about Rat Patrol is the unreleased songs, and those are great quality. The rest is pretty similar to the album versions and when they are different it's usually for the worse. I'd be disappointed if an official release was ever wasted on Rat Patrol.

TRAC i'd love to hear cleaned up though. As for London SS, I would definitely listen if something was circulating, but does not interest me much either.
I mainly want a cleaned up Rat Patrol for the awesome version of Inoculated City.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Why? We've got Marky's remix, does the trick for me!

Marky did his usual great job with what he had to work with, but we know a full fidelity tape exists.

I feel sorry for Mick. His bottom must hurt after sitting on it for so long.
