Notes & details:

This is a private cassette release from Nik Turner which is part of a series of tapes called "Official Bootleg".
The tape contains a straight-from-vinyl recording of side 1 from the deleted
LP on Pompadour label (1982) plus four tracks from non-album single releases substituting side 2 of Ersatz ("Insolence Across The Nation").
End of side 2 has some "parasite" sounds ("Silver Machine" is recognizable).

All tapes in this series are plain black with no labels; no titles and credits on cover, just handcut covers (my scan above).
Nik Turner made these tapes to be sold at gigs and from his mail address (no exact date but around 1995).

The only reference on the web to some of the tapes was on the Hawkwind Discussion List (offline now).

All tracks on side 1 + tracks 1 & 2 on side 2 are from Ersatz (Pompadour 1982).
- So try As id: Solitary Ashtray b side, 1980 Riddle 45" (Turner, Thoms, Fred, Magneto, Dave Dog).
