I finally cracked open a large box of personal recordings that I had been carrying around. I discovered some cassettes marked Home Recordings Oct. and Dec. 1997. I selected a tape from the pile, put it in my Yamaha MT4X, and was immediately transported back in time to a version of myself 20 years younger. I don’t remember why I didn’t use these songs. I created them too late to be on Silver Scooter’s debut album and quite possibly too late for the Super XX Man Vol. III 7”. I do know this: The songs were re-recorded for the second Silver Scooter LP Orleans Parish and Super XX Man’s Vol. IV CD.
I am happy to make these rare gems available on this limited double 7” release. Also included in this package via digital download are four songs from a 1997 Silver Scooter concert at Liberty Lunch in Austin, TX. These bonus tracks are raw and good and true to what the band was… way way back.
