All of these songs were later done by one or another of the bands I was in.  These recordings were typically intended to be a demo, though many feature some nice additional instrumentation by one of my mates.

Recorded on 4 - track cassette in a small house with a large lawn in Seattle.   Unfortunately I think it has since been demolished to make way for condos.   My friend Matt Chapman helped by providing equipment, space and additional instruments from time to time.  Other songs were recorded in a large apartment with a small balcony.  It rained a lot.
