Red House Painters - Early Demos
As the title might suggest, this is a collection of early cassette demos and unreleased songs recorded during the band's early days. Most of the material on these tapes later appears on Down Colorful Hill, Red House Painters I, and Red House Painters II, but here they're all in less developed stages. It's interesting to hear some of the familiar polished material in a more stripped-down, lo-fi setting. The unreleased tracks are really great, too. Guess they just didn't make the cut before the band started moving into more folky territory.
