If you previously paid for or downloaded the original remaster of Toreador Squat, feel (guilt) free to download this version without any additional donation.

Released on cassette by Trashcan Records in 1988, Toreador Squat features early versions of songs that later appeared on Flower Plower and Daisy Chain Reaction and songs that didn't make the cut.

This version is a 2013 update of the 2010 re-master and sounds much better.

Original liner notes:

Recorded by Jim with Chris in the attic, Shannon's bedroom and Chris' living room. And So It Goes recorded at Mabel's by Matt on 3 May 1988.
