This was the first of several recordings of this song that Bill, Peter, Jeff, Frank and I made. This was what we were hoping was going to be our demo, but as we quickly learned, a $200 4-Track does not a decent demo make.

The music was recorded in one pass, and the vocals were recorded in a second. I'm not sure how we managed to record the vocals as distorted as we did, but I'm sure that it wasn't intentional. As far as the numerous performance errors, I guess we figured that we weren't going to be able to play it any better than that, so why bother re-recording?
