The tape arrived today. All I can say is this: "I'm not worthy". Seriously... eargasms...
It's the real deal. The songs are (in this order):
1 - Blackball (a demo version I've never heard)
2 - Tonight I Do (I must admit, I've never been able to make out many lyrics in the crappy live versions on YouTube, but this is definately a good song)
3 - Call It Religion
4 - Ballroom Blitz (really cool, and also much "punk"er than I expected)
5 - Halloween
6 - Fire & Ice (early version of I'll Be Waiting)
The beginning of Ballroom Blitz starts with the guys talking back and forth:
Dexter: Ready Greg?!
Anyway, sorry to post this "tease" on here. I plan on ripping these to MP3 at the highest quality possible and I will also look into seeing if FLAC is doable, but no promises. It may be at least a week before I have them converted.
Again, sorry for the tease, but I promise they are worth the wait.
Another reminder if you haven't already done so, my PayPal address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I greatly appreciate any donations towards this effort. Large or small.
