Not only do you get the full live version of "The Bottle" on this album (which is worth the asking price alone), but there is also a killer 12 minute workout of "Home Is Where The Hatred Is". Plus, "17th Street". One of those lost albums tracks that rarely gets any credit, but an absolute highlight from the GSH&BJ catalogue.
The first half of the album is great but the last half, including "Home is Where the Hatred is" and "The Bottle," is mindblowing.
