The sleeve notes provided with 'Time Vaults' state that these are not studio-quality recordings. That is undoubtedly true. This is VDGG in the raw, partial tracks and snippets from studio tapes and ranging between the years '71 -'75. Tracks that never saw the light of day (with the exception of a fleshed out version of 'Black Room' on a Hammill solo album). This is powerful stuff, the concentrated essence of VDGG, trying out stuff in the studio, larking about and it's truly bizarre in parts. This is, I guess, only for the enthusiasts. It's absolutely essential.
