The audio is a transcription of Hal McGee's copy of the cassette that he received from Leslie Singer in 1984. McGee's copy of Confessions Of A Shit Addict was dubbed onto one side of a 60-minute Normal Bias Maxell cassette, with the second side left blank and labeled "Audience Participation Side". The audio itself is about 32 minutes, and it is presented here in one continuous 32-minute program, just like it is on McGee's copy. Some copies produced by Singer were dubbed onto 30-minute cassettes withe the program split onto the two sides of tape.
Good ol' Leslie Singer!

This tape bears repeated listening to properly absorb its unique elements, of which there are many. Methinks also that some of the latter portion of this tape served as a direct inspiration to our editor's recent acoustic guitar performance at Apartment Music 29 ("this song is called...").
You are absolutely right that my performance at Apartment Music 29 was directly inspired by the Mary Davis Kills Mary Davis Kills section of Confessions Of A Shit Addict.
