Fun fact! We did these recordings intending to release three different 7-inch records with three different labels, but no one we sent the tunes to ever got back to us so I paid my pal in Florida to make some tapes and slapped the Tripp Tapes name on it without telling James in advance! Sorry about that, James!

Double fun fact! There are actually 6 songs on the tape, and it’s my mom’s favorite tape even though it has “I Want To Die Young” on it. Sorry about that, mom!
