These tracks come from a variety of sources, including very old tapes of live performances. Sound quality varies from track to track, with several tracks on Disc 1 being noticeably flawed. Overall, however, the content in this fine selection of rarities compensates for minor imperfections.

Overall Quality (entirely subjective!)Five Star
Originality / UniquityFive Star

Sound Quality - Disc 2Three Star

This is impossible to find 'new' - I buy all my rarities from ebay, but I recommend observing before bidding - prices vary considerably.
Check if there's a copy for sale.
Most of the tracks are available on studio and compilation CDs.
