Assuming it hasn't been "remastered", this has been around for years.

Lots of errors in the notes, especially "Love Ain't For Keeping appears on the reissued ODDS& SODS CD". This came out prior to Lifehouse Chronicles, so most everything is from high generation tapes or acetates. Relay is the Sometimes A Great Notion mix rather than the demo mix. Same performance though.
"I know because it is impossible for a tape to hold the compression levels of these treble boosted MFSL's like Something/Anything. The metal particulate on the tape would shatter and all you'd hear is distortion if even that." - VD
