This is partly a matrix recording taken from Moonraker's 'June
VII' and 'The Return Of The Bump Squad', melting the soundboard and audience
recordings to offer the best possible version with the best possible sound.
Even if the sources used were good, hundreds of nearly unnoticeable
mini-glitches were still present on both Moonraker's and Sabotage's versions. It
was about time they were definitively and properly fixed.
CD2 clocks in at little more than 30 minutes, but we dropped the idea of adding
any kind of bonus so that the source editions kept their original charm; that's
why this one must be considered a 'complement' rather than a 'substitute'.
Purists won't like the idea of labelling this as a 'birthday gig' because
technically it took place on June 8th, but don't you usually celebrate the best
part of your birthday precisely on the early morning of the following day?
Moreover, this was a double birthday: Prince became 37 and O(+> became 2, hence
the title '37/2'.
