Before I released my album Identity, I had made a few CDs of material that I gave to my friends and family to consider. There was the Calling Long Distance EP from 2004 (senior year of high school, woo!), the follow up Free Nights and Weekends EP in 2005, and the Quality Control CDs that led up to the album. The best made it onto Identity, the leftovers are here in all their BAD glory. And to quote John Reuben, "not bad meaning good but bad meaning bad."
So here's the b-sides and the early demos. Some are finished and just not up to my low standards, and some are recorded with a desktop microphone and a $15 shareware sampler. Check the notes on each song for its history and, as always, let me know what you think.
Compilation produced by Evan Hildreth. Album name and photography by Brittany Hildreth. All songs written and produced by Evan Hildreth; Jesse Hildreth also produced tracks 6 and 8 and also wrote track 9.
