Michael Stipe, the band's vocalist did not want it released"
(end quote). Although this CD contains much of the same show
as the boot LP "We Are Having a Heavenly Time," the CD is not
mastered from the LP. For example, Stipe's comment at the
beginning of the show about having a cold is on the CD but
not the LP. Also, Driver 8, originally on the LP, but which
contains a mid-song sound glitch, is missing from that set
here.

cover.
