Summer 2003 Tour CDR

Released 07/2003

Bikes and Bridges and Lullabies were originally going to be released as a split 7″ with our friends Kiwi from Long Island. This never happened. All three songs ended up getting released first as a summer tour CD-R, then as a split CD-R with two songs from Kiwi, and finally as an enhanced CD-R with some tour videos.

This is out of print, but all the songs are now on the CD/LP of Share What Ya’ Got.

This is long, long out of print. All the songs on this recording were re-recorded and/or re-released on other releases.

There are three different versions of this that we
put out. The first was an unmastered CD-R. The second was a mastered
CD-R with a different track order than the first. The third was
a mastered tape, awesomely made by Chad, with the same track order
as the unmastered CD-R. These audio files on this site were ripped and encoded
from the mastered CD-R version.
