Radar Station Overview

The sound quality of these two vinyl albums is very good – perhaps slightly too fast(?). This is not the complete show and the songs are not in the right order. They seem to be strangely mixed up – was this the way they were broadcast on the radio? Suction Prints is labelled as Save The Mulez.

The covers are basic white sleeves with coloured inserts. Volume 1 is based on the 1976 Two Originals of Captain Beefheart release from Reprise, while Volume 2 has a photograph of the 1978 Magic Band. On the labels Volume 1 uses the same image as the cover but Volume 2 has a budgerigar.
