A double LP bootleg of mixed content.

The first record includes the four songs performed at the Kid Jensen Show,
though not in the order of their recording. These songs were first broadcast
on 10 March 1983 and repeated on 11 April. The other songs on this record
were taken from the first official singles .

The second record features selected live tracks from two Sisters concerts
in Bremen - one in November 1984 and the other one in May 1985, plus the
two main songs from the first official single The Damage Done as openers.
