This is thought of as the first online-only album released by any band, although Ween beat them to the punch with Craters Of The Sac, though that one was given away for free -- Long Tall Weekend cost money. It's a combination of a few tracks recorded specifically for this release and Factory Showroom outtakes, and lo-and-behold, it's much better than Factory Showroom. Unfortunately, very few CD copies exist (mostly distributed as promo copies), and it was sold as 128kbps mp3s, which seems a bit weird to charge for as that is pretty low quality for something you're buying. And, you know, I just LIKE having the tangible object. So I wish they would have given the option, but whatever. It's still a pretty cool release. Anyway, if you're curious, these are the songs that were from the Factory Showroom sessions that I know of:

There could be others, but those are the ones I know for sure. There's also a few songs that wouldn't come out in their FS Sessions form, like "On The Drag". Which is too bad, at least for that one, as I like the original performance much better. - Rev. Syung Myung Me
