Comments from Julio Rey:

This is the first cassette edition that we took to Cornerstone when we first played there in 1987. It's a different mix than the one on Hardcore For Jesus. H/T to Scott Will for ripping it from his personal cassette and sending it to me.

Available by free download. Comments from Julio himself:

This may qualify as the shortest EP ever: 10 seconds long (and 6 of those seconds are dead lead-out time, so you're left with 4 tracks in 4 seconds of music). Yes, it's a ten-second EP with four separate files (a .wav and an .mp3 of two different masters) of the one-second classic from Burn This Record which Retroactive accidentally left off of Hardcore For Jesus by accident.

Six of those seconds are lead-out time. So it's four tracks in four seconds.

The file contains two masters of the "song:" the original REX master and my attempt to remaster it (aka REYmaster). Both versions are in both .mp3 and .wav.
