A really nice acoustic set; Georgia's vocals are prominent (a good
thing). This is the show where Daniel Johnston phoned in and they do
"Speeding Motorcycle" together, that track later appearing as a
single. The lead-in chatter is missing (you can hear a little on
Genius + Love = YLT) but this has the outro chatter and two more songs
with Daniel! Many amusing asides during the show.
An early (pre-"new wave") organ is used to great effect: "andalucia", "emulsified", etc.
From a 3rd-gen tape; recording levels fluctuate and the Daniel
Johnston tracks are pretty hissy (another source?)
