i don't think the dirt belongs to the grass


Carbon Records CR99

a year+ in the making, and originally slated for a 10YR celebration, this compilation is documentation of amazing people/artists i've worked with over the past, now, 12 years. it also started out as a double CD project, but with the growing list of people i wanted to involve, and the overwhelming volume of confirmations, i had to grow it to a triple CD (and even had to do some trimming to fit that format). the release is packaged in a standard-size DVD case, with a full-color cover, and holds the 3 CDs as well as a full-color card-stock insert. the dvd case is then housed in a natural-color cotton bag with single-color ink stamp art/logo. the sounds range from quiet ambient sounds, to meandering guitar work, to outsider rock, to full on noise, as well as a folk/pop track here and there. [limited edition of 500]
