Off the top of my head, I believe Highly Abrasive is from a 1996 show at the Paradiso in Amsterdam, and Strawberry Valentine is from a show in Toronto on February 14, 1996 (hence the title). They were probably the two best-known CD bootlegs of that era. (Both FM sourced, though I believe Strawberry Valentine was from an FM cable station - back when there was such a thing.)
Actually the Highly Abrasive boot contains the entire 2/14/96 Toronto show with some of the Amsterdam songs tacked on. (The entire Amsterdam set can be found on the Confusion bootleg). I don't have this original CD, but I think that Highly Abrasive is a clean mono recording and Strawberry Valentine is a stereo recording with occasional static.
Ahh, that's right. I knew one of them was a KTS bootleg (then known as the only reliable bootleg manufacturer, save for one horrible Pearl Jam bootleg that was so bad they actually recalled it) - and it was Confusion. (Oddly enough, I owned exactly none of those Everclear bootleg CDs, despite being a semi-regular bootleg CD purchaser.)
