The material on this archival compact disc was recorded in Chicago, live and in the studio, between 1985 and 1987.
“III” was originally released as a C-46 cassette - by the band - in April 1987, in a limited edition of 50 copies, and with a 12-page booklet.
A number of the original collage-filled pages are reproduced throughout the new CD packaging.
A second edition of the cassette, without the booklet, was released later that year.
The original cassette contained a complete live show recorded on February 22, 1987, at the long-gone Chicago venue, Batteries not Included.
The disc’s bonus studio tracks include new edits of two previously unreleased installments in the Source Control (SCTL) series. These two tracks, created in May and September 1987, are comprised of processed source material that was originally recorded in October 1985, and like previous SCTL pieces, they are influenced by the heavier soundscape-industrial music of the early- to mid-1980s.
Brian Gaynor, who has worked on several BloodLust! recording projects, engineered the ultramaximized master from December 2004 to February 2005, while Matt Hennessy added the finishing touches, at Alien Soundscapes, Inc., Chicago.
Jonathan Canady returned to create the graphic design .
