The rear of the CD package includes the following message;
NRPS 6/13/75 was mastered directly from the original quarter track analog reel to reel tape at 7.5 ips. The few initial anomalies at the beginning of the show have been preserved for authenticity. 30 years later this show still holds up as another gem in the New Riders canon.
