A rare bootleg record containing a lossless version of the experimental studio creation variously known as Jazz Lips aka Blow Nose aka This Is Jazz. But don't get too excited: if this ditty didn't feature Michael Stipe's vocals, you'd be hard pressed to associate this in any way with R.E.M. 
The recording, taken from a battered flexi disc, took a mighty dose of cleaning up (speed adjustment, click removal). It's still a lo fi version, from a hi-gen source to begin with, but I guess it's better than nothing. File under: to be played infrequently.
