NOTE: this was labeled "The best recording of The Naked Fokes with Mike Murphy.  Much more relaxed than the actual show.  And the guitar switches, which at the show were fucked up due to a short of some sort, are exactly as they were intended.  Vocals are a little unprominent [SIC].  Much better mix than the show amd much more confident playing."
