Dark Star
Love this tight early version, worth checking out.
10
The Eleven
Faster than a speeding bullet
4
Cryptical Envelopment
Just some smashmouth jammin'
5
The Other One
Bang Pow Crash - this is primal DEAD.
5
Caution
Like drinking a pint of Chulola mixed with poprocks or just deep space mining on Saturn. Either way yer f'd up.
6
Alligator
Psychedelic swamp sludge > Drums > Blind Willie Garcia blues riffing > Caution - pretty damn boss.
6
St. Stephen
Furious, speedy version that goes into an even furious Eleven...There are some mix issues, but that's not really the band's fault, is it ?
1
Death Don't Have No Mercy
Only part of the intro survives, but what's there sounds good.
