The Butcher Says..
We were all disappointed at the way this came out. The concert was great, but logistics prevented us from making anything much more than a glorified bootleg. Still, live albums are best as souvenirs anyway, so I guess some people regard it fondly. Lots of entertaining photos to look at anyway... ;;Pat Letter: 1993-08-30;;/letters/93Aug30/albums.html#hamburg;;1993-08-30

    I had this superb album but have long since lost track of it. I'd love to get this one again.

    This is still the definitive butcher album for me. I was lisening to some versions on glourious and idiotic. They just lost some of the energy of of early days. Plese please make it available again. I partied to this album during my high school days. This the,and ep's of the the's uncertain smile and perfect are what I always search for.

    For such a rare LP, I would think the web page would have the "Lots of entertaining photos to look at" in the album that we can never find. The discograpghy does such a great job on "Bacon" but "Hamburg" and "Scandal" seem to come up short on photos.
