FREEZE, THE: Universal Punishment: CDEP

From the vaults comes this rare record from the band, given the re-issue makeover. First half is a great sounding radio session from 1988, recorded in Boston. Second half is virtually all the same songs (minus one) given the live treatment. The vintage of the live songs is not documented. But it’s a cool idea and there is no drop-off in quality from end to end. I wonder who did the cover art, since it rules.
