These Caspar Tapes were made between 1991 and 1995 on a 4-track cassette recorder. There are a bunch of songs on these tapes that you will see again as THE PRESIDENTS OF THE USA songs and some even as CASPAR BABYPANTS songs. Between 1991 and 1993 I went through a period when I could not write any songs at all. I kept on making recordings though and a lot of that stuff got released on the tapes below. Eventually my songwriting ability returned and the first song that emerged was Monkey River. I was so excited about the return of songwriting that I recorded it over and over as you will hear when you listen to these albums. This was a time of freedom to be messy and loose and I hope you dig these nuggets!
