Audio quality listed as “Gs” in Hot Wacks but may be a little bit better than this, “sound quality is not the best” states an E. John collector’s site that’s selling this title on CD-R. These eight songs are all that have ever appeared and the master tape is one of many that have gone missing/ were possibly confiscated by the FBI in a raid, along with the stampers, etc.

The reason I was not familiar with this title until fairly recently is because it was not listed in the editions of Hot Wacks that I owned.
It seems that after obtaining audio of one of the Dodger Stadium L.A. gigs, VV decided to re-issue this title with a different stamper for side1:
Side 1: Your Song/ Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds/ I Saw Her Standing There/ Island Girl/ Harmony/ Pinball Wizard
Side 2 is identical to Hecho En Mexico.
