The audio is a transcription of Hal McGee's copy of the cassette that he received from Leslie Singer in 1984. McGee's copy of Confessions Of A Shit Addict was dubbed onto one side of a 60-minute Normal Bias Maxell cassette, with the second side left blank and labeled "Audience Participation Side". The audio itself is about 32 minutes, and it is presented here in one continuous 32-minute program, just like it is on McGee's copy. Some copies produced by Singer were dubbed onto 30-minute cassettes with the program split onto the two sides of tape.
