Liz Phair Girly Sound Tapes (Girlysound)

Liz Phair Girly Sound Tapes

Sound quality is 'A'.

I have quite a few Liz Phair demo tapes, rejected versions of records and a few live shows that have been sitting on my hdd waiting so before I move on I'm going to get her posted. Also have a few other bands sitting on the hdd I'll do before I move into Mission Of Burma and others, but I've promised a few people some very rare MoB recordings and have to start moving in that direction soon, also plenty of NMA to still post also. So over the next few days or week (how ever long it takes me to get Liz done) we'll be having a Liz fest.

Liz's 1st lp was great, even a hardcore Crass fan would be hard put to rip it to shit let alone it's said to be the origin of "lo-fi" recordings, i dunno about all that but ...

Her 2nd lp was also pretty damn good but she sorta became, I dunno too pop for me after but that didn't stop me from buying her stuff, granted the last few lps I got as promos before the release dates and didn't have to pay a dime for, plus she's a Chicago hottie so, something about her just keeps me coming back for more even though the later years really aren't my cup of tea, but its said she's working on a new lp and I'm pretty sure I'll pick it up.

Tape 01 & 02 are from my cassettes, I'm lucky enough to own them.

Tape 3 comes from a 2 silver cd bootleg set of the Girly Sound Demos so even though it claims to be the full tape I can't say 100% for I don't own the elusive tape 03 nor have I known anyone who has or even seen it.

I've had the Whitechocolatespacegg album since it first came out, it was the first Liz Phair album I bought, but I have to admit the original songs are infinitely better. This is a great example of how record companies screw things up, the original is so stripped down giving it a much more "honest" sound. Thanks for posting.

I've downloaded all of these ages ago and still get pleasure hearing them come on shuffle. It's awesome to hear her progression as a musician and how her songs evolved. Thanks a million and one for sharing the wealth!
