Same comments as the other IBC tracks. Let's move on please.

Very good!
A great example of the early sound - "lead" guitar with some slide is by Brian.

Not much love here on IORR for these IBC demos...

To my ears RR is a bit stronger than some of the other IBC demos, and hints at the magic of their first album. Too bad the production is sub-par.
