"Back in 1982 at the age of 24 I bought my first recording equipment a - 2 track Teac reel-to-reel-tape-recorder. I already owned a number of analog synthesizers, an electric & acoustic guitar, various effect boxes, and a full drum set. The music was recorded live over a two year period (1982-1983) when I was still playing in LIQUID LIQUID. I was busy with the band but I still found time at home to experiment with my own sound using various instruments & vocal effects.
In early 1984 I bought my first 4 track cassette machine which ended my live reel-to-reel recording phase. The tapes were boxed up and put into storage for the next 30 years. About six months ago I was going thru some old boxes and happened to find the tapes again. I was curious to hear what I had on those tapes so I purchased another Teac reel-to-reel-tape- recorder. To my surprise there was a lot of music to choose from these recordings, so after hours of listening I came up with a set of songs that I thought was the best representation of my work from this period. Thanks to Staubgold I am able to share this unique recording experience with you, the listener."
