Notes:
12x12 inch boxed set, hand-numbered limited edition of 500 copies, 200 more reissued in 1996.
Includes extensive liner notes by Dr. Rawk and Michelle Yow, and a sticker. 16 added tracks compared with LP version, unfortunately the sound is overall inferior compared to the vinyl set.

Fierce Pup VU fanzine says: "The legendary Searchin' for my Mainline was issued in a 3 disc box. The vinyl edition of this set, which features all live tracks from '66 to '86, has long been out of print. It was touted by many as the definitive VU boot. Its re-emergence on CD allows fans the opportunity to own some of the wildest, live VU ever recorded and a few oddities. While digital technology improves on the quality of the original vinyl, we're still dealing with some lo-fi sources here so don't expect miracles. The CDs' extented recording time permits the addition of many tracks not on the vinyl edition, although there is a glaring omission: Moe and Jonathan's I'm Sticking With You."
