I believe all the work has been for the good of the world because this vinyl rip contains two songs that were never included on any of the various CD re-issues of this masterpiece. I've also preserved all the car jams at the ends of each record side.
I can only speculate why "Ain't Talking About Love" and "Mr. Robot's Holy Orders" were left off of the CD, but I'm guessing it partially had to do with time constraints, but more to do with one song being a Van Halen cover that they would have had to pay for and then it wouldn't make financial sense to make the release a double CD just to include in instrumental. I wish this would be corrected and that the album would get released in a 2 disc set that restored the songs to the original order.
Plenty has been written about this album. You can get a good start on Allmusic.com. Needless to say this is not only the Minutemen's absolute masterpiece it is a masterpiece of alternative/punk music from the 80's that still sounds as fresh and innovative as it did when it was released.
If you have never listened to this record you are in for a treat. Make sure you listen to it in order from start to finish. Don't just jump to "Corona" the theme song from "Jackass". The songs really flow into each other and work off each other. You'll notice that there are a ton of songs here. The reason being that some songs are really short. Others are longer. Songs explore jazz and funk with one foot still in the band's punk roots. It is really quite groundbreaking and influential to so much of what followed in alternative rock after this. So put in the time and download this whole thing here and treat your ears to a pure delight.
