Staying Back

My attempt to restore a bunch of mysterious audio cassettes that came to me by chance.
Without multitrack recordings, these cassettes were all that remained.

I mixed different takes of the same song/jam, and in some cases, I also mashed up different unfinished songs with similar lyrics.

All the lyrics are indeed from John Steinbeck’s books (The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men, The Pearl), creating a common thread that binds these tapes.

I tried my best to preserve and improve this job left half done, wherever possible.
Maybe these tapes came to me for a reason.

All songs produced by lietoofine @ Sottobosco Studio.

Thanks to Jordan Paul and People Zoo Records.
