TLH analysis
"I gave it just a fraction of hiss removal. I got this from a trader in the USA 20 years ago. - This was one of a small number of gigs to promote their album Live Love Larf & Loaf - some wierd and some wonderful, it was written that RT was a restraining influence on the rather strange ramblings of the other 3!".
