12" vinyl, pressed by Rainbo Records, and delivered in a DIY label-pasted-over-used-record-jacket. Travis' mom printed the labels at UOP for us, and we got the jackets off the $1 rack from the late, great, Replay Records in Manteca, CA. I stickered them and stuffed them myself. Travis and I had fun playing frisbee at a park with the shitty old records that used to live in these jackets. Some jackets are in pretty wonky shape. Includes lyrics sheet.
Includes unlimited streaming of The Valley Floor
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
Making this project was a damn hoot, and it includes the first 3 songs I wrote, as well as 3 songs each from two very old friends from what feels like another life. I look back on it with intense joy and nostalgia. I recorded it on a Tascam 424 cassette 4-track machine that still lives under my bed. Pretty sure I still have the master tapes. We, Chris Haupt and Danny Kennard played variously on each other's tracks, the details of which are quite hazy to me at this point. I do remember that putting the instrumentation onto 4 tracks was wildly complicated, and we needed charts to understand the process.
This record is not for sale digitally anymore, but you do get a download of it when you buy the LP.
