That perky face                          and those thighs

ADDITIONAL NOTES

Of the 93.08.26 recording, there's two versions of the intro -- a long,
unedited one and a shorter one without all of the "let's see here -- what
kinda chords we got here" dialogue.  The chord pattern is the same for
this intro.

A 1987 Fender Stratocaser (stock pickups, rosewood neck, jumbo frets, Kahler
tremolo, cream colored) was also used, plugged directly into the board (a
Yamaha MT-120 4-track recorder).

A Group Image demo tape (also released under the GPL) can be ordered for
$4 (Canada $5, World $7) cash or money order (US check made out to Michael
