This is a wonderful recording, I feel.
Unlike most other recordings of the show, while it's not perfect, it does sound like it is true stereo.
Also it includes songs and radio chat not on other versions of this show - for example Smiling Faces and I Enjoy Being a Boy, as well as Michael's explanation for the titling of 'Swan Swan H'. ("it was supposed to be 'Swan Swan huh').
Tusk sounds great here, as does Smiling Faces (Sometimes tell lies) - very catchy!
The band's chat about their favourite TV shows - for the example The Andy Griffiths Show, where they all start whistling the theme together, are genuinely funny.
