Early Randy Greif is something I've been wanting to hear for awhile also. I have his "Bacteria and Gravity" LP, but nothing from before that. Maybe someday Randy will start a Bandcamp page and offer his old music for sale as downloads?

My husband keeps a big box of old mailorder music catalogs. He has one for Swinging Axe that I suppose he got in the 90s. Now all I can do is point to that photocopied sheet of paper and say "Honey, look at all these tapes you did not buy when you had the chance to".

Thanks for your replay. Some of his early stuff is on internet already but probably You got it. Mr Greif is running bandcamp but only with one and present release. Maybe some people visiting this AMAZING blogspot may help? M

Hi M

Sorry I'm a bit late on this ... work gets in the way. I suppose it depends on what you call early, but I have everything pre-1994 except the Magnetic Spine Review tape (damn thing has always eluded me). Don't know what is on the internet already but ...

Don't have Easy Green Proof or Bypass Thru the Sky but if the things mentioned above is what you mean then yeah ...

Hi Ochyming!

It always cheers us up when you like a post but it's usually two or four words. I've noticed that in the last week or two that you are using more words ... keep it up :-)

Seriously tho' ... we love it that you like (some of) what we do!

Morning!

Well, if you count AIW as five affirmatives then the list starts with 16 straight off the bat. There a few that I have in the rest of the list but will have to check ...

I'd better start working on it then I suppose ...
