Album Notes
Las siguientes grabaciones permiten a las (os) oyentes, ser testigos de cómo nosotros, las agrupaciones musicales, el público y mí persona, nos comportábamos bajo las presiones de las presentaciones en vivo. Este es el triunfo y lo que salva a estas grabaciones de los actos ilegales: ellas preservan y diseminan momentos que de otra forma habrían sido “sueños” y/o de recuerdos improbables. Quizás nos haya escuchado antes en otros álbumes. Quizás sea la primera vez que escucha nuestras canciones. Si es así, considerar: esta es una verdadera y real grabación en vivo, en frente de miles de personas “en vivo”, sin adulterar, de la forma que fue y debe ser. Música “en vivo”, sin todos los tratamientos mierderos.. que hacen hoy a los que no cantan, cantar.., a los que no tocan música, tocar.., y donde el público, sin la mínima idea, asume haber sido testigo de la “verdad musical”. Aunque uno “se la cague..” mientras canta o toca en vivo; ¿no es eso mejor.. que “cagársela mintiendo”.. que pretendes saber cantar o tocar?
Gracias por comprar ésta versión.

The following recordings allow all listeners to witness how we, the bands, the public and myself, behaved under the pressures of live performances. That is the saving grace of these illegal acts: they preserved and distributed moments that otherwise would have only become the stuff of dreams and/or of unproven remembrances. Maybe you have heard us in albums before. Maybe this is the first time you listen to our songs. If it is, consider: this is a real live recording, in front of thousands of live people, unadulterated, the way it was and the way it should be. Live music, without all the bullshit treatments that today make the non-singers sing, the non-players play and the public that has no clue feel they have witnessed the truth in music. Even if one fucks up while playing live; isn't that better than fucking up by lying, that is pretending to play? 
Thank you for purchasing this version.

R. Blades
