Quote from the cover back:
For your information: "Ivar L. was a young Swedish man in the 19th century.
He killed his really loved son, he didn´t want him to suffer from being alive.
Later on he killed himself when he realised that there was no more reason to live.
This record is dedicated to Gustave."
- Recorded live on November 21st, 1990 at Philipshalle, Düsseldorf, Germany
- At least one video recording does exist, see Dusseldorf Philipshalle (video).
This one could possibly be the tape or the master of the tape that is included in one of the box sets.
