All songs done with a cheap tape recorder in my house while I was sitting on the sofa..with the exception of Will She Be Mine, which is performed by Mike.
There is NO OVERDUBBING..in other words..all of what you hear is what I actually played in the moment it was recorded.

Will She Be Mine-by Mike*2 http://www.handlebar.net/WillSheBeMine.mp3
1. What you hear on this site is exactly what was created in the exact moment it was recorded. In other words...you are hearing the very first time-the very first moment that this song came into existence. I just started playing one day back on November 5, 1992. I hadn't realized that it was two years to the day of my father's death.
Another interesting thing about this is that I didn't realize that it was 2 years after my father's death until November 5, 1998.
I realize the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired...but when you think about it..it's pretty amazing that it ended up here after all these years.
2. This song was done by a friend of mine named Mike. If you want to know more about him..let me know. He did all of the voices and instruments..in his apartment! I first heard this on New Year's Eve (actually, it was about 1:30am on New Year's Day) a couple of years ago..and it really took me by surprise. The copy I have is from a very inexpensive grade of tape..so try to imagine how it would sound if it were recorded professionally.
