Jeff Wiegand of the band offered some background on the release:
 
This show was recorded at City Gardens in New Jersey during July of ’86. We had just finished up the final mixing of All-Night Lotus Party in June and went back out on the road for a bit.
 
The original cassette tape was restored by Bob Weston and Jon Williams. Bob tells me the whiz-bang technical term for this is “audio restoration.” Whatever it might be called, they did a great job.
