This was my first tape of solo material. I did it in my dorm room
in college as a present for my then girlfriend,
Liz. It's really awful. A third of
the songs are Pink Floyd covers, four are somewhat original instrumentals,
and only one is a song I actually wrote lyrics for. The tape didn't
even have nifty cover art to save it.
What is sort of interesting is that I had pretty much forgotten about
this tape for a few years until my friend Jack told me he had come across
it while he was living with Liz. For some reason, I even got it in
my head that he took it as some sort of inspiration to learn to play guitar,
although he denies anything of the sort. :)
The silly cover art that's pictured at the top is something I pounded
together in about ten minutes in May 1997 just so I'd have something for
my website. The artwork is actually something
I had laying around from an attempt to make in an interesting front picture
for the site. Somehow it fits better here.
