A note: These transfers to MP3 were made from vinyl, cleaned with SoundSoap, and tweaked in Audacity. A few clicks and pops remain. I've tried to find the master reels for these LPs but so far no luck. I have moved countless times since those days and halfway across the country, so I think those tapes are now lost. These noisy dubs, I think, will have to do. This reissue project would not have been possible without the encouragement and digital transfer assistance from Mike Krause.
