11 MP3 Songs

Here''s Number 2 of our series!
In 1984 Greg and I decided to make sure we’d have a recording of every song he had written from when he wrote his first song in 1969 to his most recent to date. We recorded them in chronological order. We present them here in alphabetical order to mix things up a bit for variety.
We will release more recordings as we finish re-mastering them.
We hope you enjoy.
What you, the listener, will hear are the songs exactly the way they were first imagined and then catalogued, with no arrangements or production, just vocal/word and acoustic guitar. The styles varied as we went from song to song and I truly never thought that they would ever be used as anything but documentation, much less entertainment. But amazingly, they still stand, and they do tell some cool stories.
Not every one is a home run, by any means, but please remember the name of this collection:”The Catalogue Tapes” This is a place where three guys were attempting to sort and produce a huge amount of material because that was the way it was supposed to be for us. It is a tremendous effort to make real all the things you talk about when you walk around suburbia and talk all night and dream. We were embarking on another great adventure together and quite frankly, to this day, I can’t think of a better place to be: singing stuff I wrote to my brothers, about a place we all knew well and people we all knew even better. With this CD, and in many other good ways, we are there together still. Please listen and enjoy, as the songs are now for you.
The Catalogue Tapes Vol. 3 should be available late April or early May.
