Bootleg vinyl sources :-
Tracks 01 - 02 are from the bootleg 7" single "Dance Of The Cannibals Of Sex" (FAMOUS LUX - LUX 102).
Tracks 03 - 15 are from the bootleg LP "Tales From The Cramps" (CAVE RECORDS 001).
Tracks 16 - 25 are from the bootleg LP "Same As The Cavemen" (What's The Beef Records – SO WHAT 2).

Tracks 01 - 03 are live audience recordings, and as such of lower quality (but still considerably better than the CBGB's mp3 version that's here:-
http://www.garagepunk.com/2006/10/04/out-of-the-vaults-into-your-ears-15/
which sounds as if the tape it was sourced from has been put through a mangle or something!).
The rest of the tracks were originally taken from the mixing desk/soundboard, and are all of at least very good quality.


Lineage info (for all tracks) :-

Bootleg vinyl -> unknown hi-fi record deck -> Nakamichi 3-head dual capstan cassette deck (record) -> TDK-SA (Type II) cassette tape

Note that no noise reduction or "click and pop" filtering has been used on these captures of tapes of the bootleg vinyl recordings, they have been left exactly as they were recorded originally.
