In October 1994 Dave Grohl went to Robert Lang Studio in Seattle to record 15 of his best songs. At the end of the session he took a rough mix of the entire session to a cassette duplication studio in Seattle and ran off 100 copies, giving them to friends and family. Later in 1995 he took the 15 songs and finished off the mix, and 12 of those mixed songs are what appears on the debut album from 1995, Foo Fighters. Two other tracks were released as B-Sides to singles (Winnebago, Podunk) and the 15th was never officially released, Butterflies.
What you have here is a digitised version of one of those initial 100 tapes, containing the complete session in the original, rough mix. This mix has been online before but from dubbed, generated tapes. This is the first time one of the original 100 tapes has been transferred.
The mix isn't vastly different from the final mixes but there are a few small differences and you also hear all of the count-ins and pre/post song noises. --------- Transferred on a Nakamichi CR-7a at 44.1khz, 24-Bit. Completely raw transfer of the tape except for normalisation and track splitting. ---------
