This CD is compiled, in the main, from a number of old demos. Most of the tracks were recorded on an assortment of systems in various bedrooms and cellars between 1966 and 1978. Generally, the tracks hark back to the 50's and 60's sometimes seriously and sometimes not.
The earliest of the tunes were recorded on a B&O stereo tape deck - the first of its kind that would allow simultaneous recording and bouncing between tracks. Later performances were recorded on a four track TEAC and still later on a Fostex A8.
Rick revived some of his old songs when he needed some non-royalty music for the backstage scenes in Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story.
Some are resurrected old lyrics and re-recorded more recently..
