"All present recordings, with the exception of "All My Money's Gone", "Better Off Dead", "Rollin' And Squeezin'" and "Midnight At Jazzland" were all taped incidentially or for our own consumption and enjoyment at various live concerts or rehearsals, without any intention to ever release them. Over the years, however, we realized that the relaxed atmosphere, the care-free manner and spontaneity - the live quality of these recor- dings could not be archived in the studio. In a majority of cases no rehearsal preceded the recordings. We combed through our archives, listended to hundreds of hour of tapes and came to the conclusion that we should present the Blues lovers with what seem some of the best recordings of the Band, even though many of the titles are far from being perferct recordings as far as the music as well as the recordings technique is concerned.

Only those who really live the Blues, understand it an treasure it, can maintain its vitality, expressiveness and natural ease, which is consequently often mirrored in a wide variety of life's aspects. Simplicity is beauty, and yet, simplicity is so hard to come by; over-sophistication is an evil of our times!" from the Booklet -- Hans Maitner
