Elvis Costello Rarities/bootleg Part 1!

Alright, I've got a copy of Elvis Costello and The Atractions - 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong. Elvis Costello is my favorite musical artist of the last 35 years or so. When I get pissed off, especially with ladies, Elvis is like an understanding, bitter older brother who's been through it and knows just what to say. This is a double LP bootleg on Slipped Disc records from Monaco. I've ripped all 4 sides, and now must edit them all, which is daunting. I'm kinda lazy so I'm gonna pace myself and go one side at a time and post them as I go. For info on this bootleg, you can check the Wiki on it. Basically, it's a bunch of live and demo recordings of Elvis Solo and with the Attractions, from the very early days. A quote from the a source of the Wiki: "Essential. The Agora concert appears in better quality on other bootleg CDs, but the Capitol Radio recordings on the Rhino re-issue were taken from a worn copy of this bootleg (hence the heavy noise reduction). But these sound amazing on this LP, so that makes it necessary to get an original copy of on vinyl." Well I have an original copy on vinyl, so you can download my rip! Here's side 1:
