Additional notes:

Single sided tape. There is not much known about this release. Some people believe other tapes on AKY are advance copies from the label, others believe them to be demos (though on this particular tape, the tracks are not demo quality), while others believe these to be bootlegs. Until more information surfaces, we will leave this tape here.
