This was my first tape of entirely original music. (Well, mostly original. Three of the songs were parodies of other songs and the brief intro to "The House That Jack Built" was completely ripped off from "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother".) It was recorded during my first six months working for IBM in Poughkeepsie, which was my first time out in the "real world". Most of the songs were written during that period, but a lot of them were recycled from The Daily Quote.

As for the title... just about every meaning you can think of probably applies. Of course, the intended meaning was just that this was my first tape that wasn't made up mostly of cover tunes. ;)

The cover art pictured is a rough approximation of the even rougher hand-drawn art I did on each cover. It's one of those designs that "just came to me" but looking back I can't imagine what the heck I was trying to imply meaning-wise.

The song "Keven's In Love" is interesting because it's about the guy who later helped me do the rest of my cover art (and his then girlfriend, later-to-be wife). Despite the low sound quality and lower singing quality, I seem to remember him playing this song at his wedding or at least talking about it. That song and "Tits" are the pretty much the only songs from this tape I play nowadays.
