Comments: Mostly demo outtakes from the Travelling Wilbury sessions of April/May 1988.
Although, also included are fully released extended versions on the last two tracks.
Not a great boot by any means, with most of the demo's of poor(ish) quality with plodding drum machines, but of course, worth possessing so as to hear these early takes.

The vinyl label has a totally fake group name and track list, along with an invented label ID as you can see above. This of course is for bootlegging purposes ! ... with this label in hand, the bootleggers can walk into a legitimate plant and get unknown tracks pressed up quite easily.

2 Assholes I don't know much about this track, certainly it didn't appear on the Wilbury album.
The opening line of the song is "It's an assholes celebration ..." and then that word, that we shouldn't mention, is in just about every line of the song.
