A Token Of His Extreme Soundtrack
ZR20015

That's right, it's the soundtrack to the DVD of the KCET TV show on August 27 1974. You've got the DVD so why do you need this? One reason is that it's Official Release #97. Another reason is that several tracks are considerably longer than on the DVD. Yet another reason is that this is an entirely different mix to the Dub Room Special CD which is taken from the same performance.

Tracklist:
The Dog Breath Variations/Uncle Meat (4:02) . Montana (6:44) . Earl Of Duke (5:49) . Florentine Pogen (11:08) . Stink-Foot (3:58) . Pygmy Twylyte (7:47) . Room Service (12:12) . Inca Roads (9:51) . Oh No/Son Of Orange County (7:10) . More Trouble Every Day (7:17) . A Token Of My Extreme (1:25)
