If you are looking for classic Napalm Death (Lee Dorian, Mick Harris and Bill Steer), you’ve got it here. If you want later stuff (Barney and Mitch Harris), here it is. The later material is great and all, but there is something about that early stuff. Isn’t there? Well, now there’s more. These recordings feature alternate versions of songs we all love from the classic period. These recordings are very different. First of all, both the production and performances are sharper, quicker, and even more vicious then the recordings found on Scum and FETO. These certainly don’t supplant those recordings, but they do shed a new light on some very vital material. Absolutely essential listening!!
